How is the Rockhill & Halton training material different from material offered in books and on other Web sites?
The internet contains many sites purporting to provide information, guidance, and material to help you with your Written Examination, Oral Interview, and/or Assessment Center preparation. Several books are available which address Tests, Interviews, and Assessment Centers. The fact is, a "one size fits all" approach does not work. Each Written Examination, Assessment Center, and Oral Interview is different. A "generic" approach to this process will be of little help to you and may even harm your chances for promotion. Each consultant hired by cities, counties, states, and the federal government has their own style and technique. Each city, county, and state which does their own testing has a unique system. These differences require different strategies and materials to properly prepare you for success. This Web site specializes in providing promotional candidates with strategies, performance suggestions, and practice material which are tailored for the process in which you will compete.
How is the Rockhill & Halton training material tailored for different national consultants?
Our company has spent years compiling information about the styles and techniques of the major consultants conducting testing and assessment for the emergency services. Now, you may take advantage of our experience, expertise, and knowledge by ordering materials targeted for your process. You will receive telephone and e-mail support once you have received the materials and once you begin to prepare and practice.
How is the Rockhill & Halton training material tailored for an organization that does its own testing or uses a local consultant?
Your organization is using a local consultant or conducting their own process? No problem! On this Web site, we'll describe the various types of exercises for you. We'll have you complete some basic information about the process used in your location. Then we'll send you specially selected material to prepare you for the unique nature of your Examination, Assessment Center, and/or Oral Interview.
If I want some expert, personal feedback and assistance, what other services does Rockhill & Halton offer once I have read the material and begun to practice?
You may purchase an evaluation by a trained assessor of your Written, Oral, or Interactive Practice Exercise(s)
How can the Rockhill & Halton training material be purchased?
You may buy our materials separately (a la carte pricing), or purchase a "Prep-Pack" which contains all you'll need to get ready for your promotional testing process at one low price.
What will you receive in your "Prep-Pack?"
If my organization is using a "nationally known" consultant, how do I order my "Prep-Pack?"
Just check the list below. If your consultant is on this list, you need only tell us which one it is. We'll do the rest! We'll put together all the information you need to be successful and include all appropriate practice materials. Here are some consultants who are active in testing and assessment in the emergency services. Once you have found your consultant, click here on ORDER "PREP-PACK" and complete the order form. We'll e-mail or call you prior to creating your Custom Assembled Preparation Manual and then ship it to you promptly. Please note that our training material is based on the formats frequently used by these consultants. Rockhill & Halton, Inc. has no official connection with the consultants listed below, and our material is wholly created by Rockhill & Halton, Inc. to better prepare you for your Examination/Assessment Center/Interview.
If my organization is using a "local" consultant (not on the above list) or if they're putting on the process themselves, how do I order my "Prep-Pack?"
We'll need you to tell us all you can about your upcoming Examination, Interview, and/or Assessment Center. The first step is to ask your civil service, personnel, or department training representative (or whoever is coordinating the Examination/Assessment/Interview) to tell you about the upcoming process or past processes if this one is to be similar. Perhaps an orientation session has been conducted (or is scheduled) or an orientation document has been distributed - these are very useful to us in our planning of what to include in your material. Once you have as much information as you can obtain, we will interview you briefly on the phone. We will then create your Custom Assembled Preparation Manual and ship it to you promptly.
To help us decide which of our materials you will need, here is a list of names of the most commonly used Test/Interview/Exercise components. Click on the Test/Interview/Exercise component name and you will be provided with a brief description of the exercise. Please review the component descriptions so that we can better match our material with your process. When you have identified the descriptions and names of the components which are most likely to be used in your process, then click here on ORDER "PREP-PACK" and complete the order form. If you need to, you can also click on the Test/Exercise/Interview component name on the order form and it will return you to the exercise description.
PRICE FOR "PREP-PACK"
What if the "Prep-Pack" isn't right for me because I only need material about one or two components (Test, Interview, or Assessment Center Exercises)? How do I order less than the "Prep-Pack?"
