    Just applied for OCSD and take the test on Sept. 6th. Any insight on the written and their process.

    I'm going on the 6th as well, from what I hear the test is 100 questions. Theres alittle bit of math,and they also test on map knowledge. Pretty easy, after that if you pass they give an interview then you go through the PAT.

          I tested 2 yrs ago with OCSD and if you have a Associates or Bachelors degree, the written is waived. They'll ask you to come in PT gear (I'd probably come in a suit to make a good first impression) and your PAT will follow right after the written. Besides the typical PAT, you have to push a patrol car 10 ft. If time permits, you'll have an oral board that day which is nice to have the suit as well.

          OCSD testing info can be found HERE.

            I think with the map part of the test they'll have a picture of a map and ask what the fastest way is to get from point A to point B, or if you left the library how do you get to the high school.

              I went through OCSD's process back in 2001. I thought the testing process was no more difficult than LASD, RSD, or LAPD's. The PAT is pretty straight forward. The oral board was standard, 2 deps and a civilian asking the normal questions. PK's site will be more than enough to make sure you get throuh the process.

                So for sure the test is waived, because I have an AA already.

                  I just called a recruiter and she said the written is not waived for those with a college degree. Panel interviews will be from the 8th-12th.

                    I'm gonna get there really early, it seems like theres going to be alot of people there. Does anyone if you have to do 30 pushups and 30 situps in 5 mins. I dont remember where I heard this from, supposedly you have to this for the PAT.

                      Yeah I think I'll go early also. What does the PAT actually entail?

                        Map knowledge is simply, they will present you a map...they will ask you how to legally get from point A to point B. You will need to know what North, East, South, and west is. Etc. Very easy.

                          No, OCSD does not waive the written test for the DST position. They only waive it for the Reserve Deputy position if you have a college degree.

                          If they say to come in PT gear, just come in PT gear. But have a suit ready in case they do have an interview scheduled that day. If you are only taking the written test that day, then wear a suit.

                          OCSD doesn't have the car push incorporated in their PAT anymore. They replaced that with the 30 situps and 30 pushups within 5 minutes (this should really be changed to 2 minutes)...this is a pass/fail. They also have you run one mile within 10 minutes. And you'll have the O-Course and trigger pull (both left handed and right handed).

                            Yes, 30/30 within 5 minutes. There will be someone to hold your feet down for the situps...and you will perform the situps with your left arm over your right arm crossed over your chest.

                            Your pushups should be complete with your chest almost touching the ground, and your head up (looking ahead at your threat).

                              30/30 5 mins? wow, do they want the person to exceed the minimum if possible? or are they going to time how fast we can finish? Because 5 minutes is a really long time.
