About AIFP Services

Most organisations find that they hire people for what they know, and wish they could fire them for who they are.  

At AIFP, we are fully aware of the challenges in finding out who an applicant really is – what is their character, values and attitudes – and how they are likely to behave in a job. This is crucially important when their job requires protecting the safety of other people.

Over the last thirty years we have developed a number of procedures to accomplish this goal.  

Many organisations rely on "off the shelf" tests, either for measuring personality or abilities such as reading, numeracy and writing. In contrast, all of our tests have been specifically designed for screening applicants to roles where the job requires making decisions about the safety of other people.  

Our tests have been completely developed for Australian conditions and have been normed on a wide cross section of Australian applicants. Equally importantly, our norms are developed for each profession that we serve.  

Our Structured Interview Guide has evolved over the last thirty years. We have developed the most powerful and probing questions available which help you to find out information about an applicant which would never be revealed in the ordinary interview.  

In summary, the AIFP system contains the best available tools for the psychological evaluation of police, corrections, firefighters, ambulance and other public safety personnel, whether they be applicants or serving officers.
