The ministry test is designed to test your knowledge of the ministry mandated curriculum. For some of you, this will mean that you will need to brush up your knowledge in some areas that you have never trained in before.

According to Brian Roberson who writes for the Canadian Security Magazine, “As many as 10,000 to 12,000 of the first 80,000 people who write the tests will fail them.” The test is passable, but for those who are already employed in the security industry, it is a good idea to prepare for it instead of just trying to wing it.
