New Jersey's municipal police officers, county corrections officers, state rangers, and other law enforcement members all start their careers in the same place: the entry-level exam. A single answer on this test could mean the difference between two candidates for the same position. It's a written obstacle course, with 10 sections that cover everything from deductive reasoning to personality traits. Luckily, it's a challenge that Top Brass Learning Centers' instructors have all met first hand. In fact, the faculty consists of police supervisors that have all scored high on their own exams. During classroom sessions, these experts cover all aspects of the written test, incorporating practice exams and training materials. They spend hours working with future officers until they can leave confident and ready to begin a life of civic service.
The instructors also help current officers advance their careers. Promotional level classes prep these continuing students for the oral, written, and video portions of sergeant, lieutenant, and captain exams. The classes are designed for working police men and women, and instructors post online versions of each lesson to accommodate students who cannot attend in-person.
The educators at Hudson Learning Center know that all students have their own strengths and weaknesses.

Then?during either private or group sessions?they work with pupils to improve skills in math, reading, history, or pretty much any other subject. They can also help older students prepare for important tests, like the SAT and ACT.
In addition to their structured tutoring, Hudson Learning Center's staff hosts an after-school homework help program. From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., tutors stand ready to help students complete assignments, study for exams, or wait out the necessary quarantine periods after cooties outbreaks.
