Officer Cadet - Defence Forces Recruitment

Army, Navy, Air Corps

Officer Cadet – Army, Navy, Air Corps Aptitude Test Preparation Two Day Course.

Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June 2022


Increasingly in recent years Aptitude Tests are being used as part of the selection process for many careers. One such career is the Defence Forces Officer Cadetship Competition where the test determines whether or not applicants are cleared to the interview stage of the selection process. Performance of candidates in aptitude tests can be improved in a number of ways. These include exposure to tests (i.e. seeing tests in advance), by practice and by being taught good test technique. Throughout the course good test technique will be taught and developed.

Types of Tests Covered

A full range of appropriate tests will be covered similar to those which have already been used in the previous cadet competitions.

If for any reason the Cadet Aptitude Test changes Test Preparations will make such amendments as are necessary to our preparation courses to ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality programme possible.

(Psychometric tests will be covered, please note that for the Air Corps, psychomotor tests cannot be covered)

A recent survey of previous Test Preparations course participants showed a 97% success rate at Stage 1 of the selection process, many of whom were in the top one hundred places.

Not only do we cover material very similar to what appears on the actual aptitude test but we also explain it in such a way that participants can apply what they learn to any type of questions which appear on the actual test.
