    • Preparing for the Personality Assessment

      Personality Assessment Preparation

      The questions are designed to give the Transportation Service employer a picture of the type of person you are. It is very useful in telling them about your personality, your behavioral tendencies, your learning style, your values, ethics, and your moral standards.

      Although you can’t technically study for a personality test, you can pass by preparing yourself a little beforehand and giving true answers. You should take practice tests well in advance in order to understand the types of questions you might be asked and the types of answers that are suggested.

      Being prepared for the Exam is vital as it will determine who gets certified and who is selected to become an EMT or EMR.
