FF-EL 202/302 (TIP) Series

About the Assessment

The FF-EL 202/302 (TIP) Series includes a 20-minute session in which candidates must study material from a Test Information Packet (TIP), such as work-related articles, wanted posters, and maps. TIPs are collected after the study period has ended, but before the test booklets are distributed. Some of the multiple-choice items assess how well candidates remember the information they just studied in the TIP.
