Personality Tests are useful tools in today’s workplace. Not only do they provide a scientific basis for selection and development of employees, they also save incredible time and cost given their ability to assess candidates rapidly and objectively. However, these benefits disappear if the tools are not used properly. It’s important for all users of a personality test to understand the basic principles of psychometric assessment generally, in addition to how the test works, how to interpret it, report and make decisions based upon the test. This is where our Apollo Personality Test Training Courses come in.
In order to ensure that all independent users of the Apollo Profile are competent to use it, PsyAsia International and the Apollonean Institute require users to demonstrate their competence by way of one of the routes below.
Routes to Apollo Personality Test Training
The Apollo Profile Basic Online Course
PsyAsia International designed this course to enable busy HR managers and the like to have fast access to the Apollo Profile whilst still ensuring that they are competent in the use of the test. The Basic Online course consists of a narrated, interactive presentation and is priced to allow easy access to the Apollo Personality Profile reports. Do note however that completion of this course does not “accredit” users in the Apollo Profile. Accreditation requires one of the options below. However, those who successfully complete the Basic Online Course will be able to use certain reports from the Apollo system. They will not get their own Online Psychometric Testing System and will need to pay the reasonable yet more highly priced bureau service fee when using Apollo. You may register for the course anytime (even on weekends and late at night!) here. Feel free to contact us if you have questions about what you can do after completing the course.
Attend PsyAsia International’s Apollo Personality Test Training Course
PsyAsia’s experienced psychologists are accredited by the publisher of the Apollo Profile to accredit users in the tool. Full details of the one-day (plus pre-course) accreditation course are provided below. We offer public courses primarily in Singapore & Hong Kong and in-house courses for groups of between 4-12 people anywhere worldwide but with special focus on Asia.
Distance Learning Accreditation
For this option, we provide you with soft-copy Apollo Profile literature which includes manuals and sample reports. You read through the material and then when you are ready you complete an online test. You need to pass the test first go. If you don’t you will need to choose one of the other options to use the Apollo Profile! You can commence your Distance Learning for the Apollo Profile right now by clicking this link and selecting “Apollo Profile Accreditation”. Successful graduates of this learning will be fully accredited in the Apollo Profile and will receive an online psychometric personality test system with their first order for 20 or more Apollo credits.
Attend our Psychometric Assessment at Work Course
PsyAsia International’s Psychometric Assessment at Work Course leads to a qualification from the British Psychological Society. PsyAsia International was the first and, at the time of writing, is the only organization in Asia offering this course publicly on a regular basis – our facilitator is a resident of Asia! Those who attend this firm grounding in psychometric assessment of personality and aptitude have the option to also qualify in the Apollo Profile without additional fee.

Why Apollo Personality Test?
There’s a complete range of personality tests on the market that purport to assess personality. Some of them use methods that should not be used in selection decisions. Other tests lack technical rigor and have low reliability and validity. Apollo not only counters these issues but it goes one step further. Even well reputed personality tests compare your candidate with the average candidate to make the scores meaningful. Apollo is not concerned with average, but with excellence and is unique in this way. Apollo reports tell you how your candidate’s personality relates to those who have been rated as excellent in various roles such as Management, Call Center Sales, General Workforce and so on. In addition, Apollo is one of the best value-for-money personality tests around – you pay once per candidate and get unlimited reports per candidate. There are no annual license fees to pay. You get your own Apollo online system which you manage yourself. For more details, please view our Apollo Profile Personality Test page.
The Apollo Personality Test Training Course is always facilitated by registered organizational psychologists. We don’t believe in having non-psychologists facilitate training for psychological assessments. With PsyAsia International, training in psychometric tests is only ever carried out by experts in the field.
