The Post Offer, Pre Placement Evaluation Program (PEP)
The strength testing program (PEP) was developed and validated to determine if new hires
in various occupational groups possess the minimum level of strength necessary to perform the
essential physical tasks of the job.
Tests have been validated for the following occupational groups: Custodians, Food Service Workers,
Special Education Instructional Assistants, Building and Grounds Maintenance Workers,
Delivery Drivers, Warehouse Workers,
Mechanics and Special Education Bus Drivers. Each new hire must pass the strength test with a
score sufficient to ensure the new hire has the necessary strength to perform the essential
functions of the job. Passing scores are based on the strength demands of each occupation.
