I am having a disagreement with my boss. I want all new employees to take a water test that includes a 500 yard swim, an active victim rescue, an "off the bottom" rescue of an unconscious person, a spinal turn in shallow water and CPR. My boss says " If they are already currently certified why bother with all of that? Besides even if you do the testing the Red Cross only requires 300 yards to take Lifeguard Training why would you make them swim 500 yards to get a job?"
What sorts of pre-employment testing do you all do?
