The notion of outsourcing fitness testing may be completely foreign to many agency decision-makers. After all, one might ask “Why did we bother to train these guys (and gals) to be fitness coordinators if they’re not going to test our people?” And that rationale is entirely appropriate for some agencies. However, for other agencies, the decision to allow a third party to conduct testing makes perfectly good sense. If your agency has a history of challenge, is especially ‘politicized’, struggles with consistent application of policies, is geographically dispersed, or is limited in personnel or resources, an independent partner dedicated to testing may be the remedy.
