This video has been developed to assist candidates in taking the Michigan Sheriffs' Coordinating and Training Council (MSCTC) Local Corrections Officer Physical Ability Test (LCOPAT). The LCOPAT is a prerequisite to being hired as a corrections officer at a Sheriff's Office in the state of Michigan. The LCOPAT is designed to simulate the physical aspects of the corrections officer job. The LCOPAT is made up of different components, with each component addressing a specific corrections officer physical ability or job task. Since the LCOPAT closely resembles the job, performance on the job should mimic performance on the LCOPAT. As a result, we can use a candidate's score on the LCOPAT to predict how that candidate might perform if he/she were selected to become a corrections officer. Passing scores on the LCOPAT indicate that a candidate is more likely to be physically fit for the job.
