This book is a step-by-step guide to planning and implementing a successful entrance exam or promotional test for a police, fire or EMS organization. Common and sometimes tricky issues are discussed. These include disparate impact, increasing the representation of a particular demographic group, challenges, and grievances.

The author’s professionally built and time-tested protocols in the text address known problems when conducting written testing, assessment centers, and psychological screenings. The process includes stakeholder buy-in before any testing process is begun, by providing standard, sound, and transparent procedures that people can see and agree on. The protocol ensures fairness, technical quality, standardization, and transparency.

The author recommends an examination and testing process preparation timeline. This is a must-have for human resource directors, fire and police chiefs, EMS directors and union officials to ensure fair, transparent, effective and valid testing in your organization.
