I/O SOLUTIONS (IOS) TRAINING MODULES (Fire Services Chief Officer)

This is the most thorough, comprehensive instruction for an IOS-specific Assessment Center process available anywhere from any training firm or online company!

I/O Solutions (IOS) is one of a very few Test/Assessment Center companies that does not tell candidates what they can expect in the way of the specific types of exercises in which they will participate. Although they will conduct a "live" orientation session or two with candidates and may provide candidates with Power Point slides of perhaps ten exercise descriptions, they will not narrow down which three (usually) to five components they will use in the Assessment Center. Normally, we would recommend that you hold off purchasing our training module(s) until you have had the orientation, but that may be of little value. Here are exercises that they favor: Oral In-Basket (more typical for mid-management and above), Structured Interview, Tactical Exercise, Shift/Staff Briefing (usually for law enforcement processes), Community Meeting Exercise (for law enforcement — a presentation with a question-answer session to follow), a Presentation Exercise; and, to a lesser extent, Background Qualifications Presentation Exercise (long oral resume, perhaps with follow-up questions from assessors), Role Play Exercise (they have nearly stopped giving this fully-interactive component), and the Written Response In-Basket (very doubtful). There could be a hybrid Assessment Center in which you will prepare for and participate in as many as five components; however, if this is the case, the components will each be less complex and require shorter response times than there would be if there were only three. As to your actual Assessment Center, I/O Solutions (IOS) favors a process in which candidates appear before a panel of assessors as opposed to video/audio recording your performance for later evaluation; therefore, you can expect a bit of cordial interaction with the assessors before and/or after your exercise performance.
