These candidates should be tested for subject knowledge, supervisory
knowledge, and administrative topics.  Psych testing could be considered
optional, unless perhaps they are new to our organization, in which case it
might be considered recommended; same for any sort of physical - except
possibly the basic medical workup, again if new to the organization.  We
would use Written Testing and Assessment Center for these Candidates,
with Psych an option, especially for newcomers.

Written Testing

For Higher Supervisory Candidates, we will examine their management
and administrative knowledge, Department knowledge, and applicable
Federal and State Documents such as Statutes, Pre-Hospital Medical
Protocols, and/or Civil Defense or Disaster Preparedness Plans.

There are several fine texts in print from which to draw the principles of
Management and Administration, as well as the other document types

Psych Testing

This is one of the two other times than Entry when Psych Testing should
be considered.  Higher Supervisory Level and Administration require
more advanced skill sets and psychological stability than non-supervisory
work or a First Supervisory position and it is a good practice to check and
document those attributes at this time.  It is comparable in cost to
Written Testing.

Assessment Center

This is the front line Instrument of choice for Promotion to Higher
Supervisory Candidates.  These key organizational positions should have
the most careful and comprehensive examination we can provide - and
that is the Assessment Center.  

Consisting of up to six separate exercises, many of them interactive, an
Assessment Center provides a full and detailed look at Candidate
capabilities, well simulated to the stressful conditions of real life.  It puts
them in Command of Major Incidents, has them interacting with
Community Groups, Employee Groups and/or media, and examines their
Administrative Skills.  It is best used in conjunction with Written and
Psych testing and should not be considered a substitute for either of
those.  Taken together, those three provide a "best practice of the day",
duly diligent, and comprehensive look at Candidates capabilities.
