MCOLES Testing

KCC is an approved testing site for the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards Reading & Writing and Physical Fitness Testing for entrance into a police academy. We have scheduled the testing dates and times so any participant is able to take both tests on one day. You must bring valid government-issued photo identification (driver’s license, state ID card, military ID or passport) to each test.

More information on testing can be found on the MCOLES MCOLES Logowebsite at
