BPS Level 1 & 2 Test User Course: Psychometric Assessment at Work Course

This intensive professional course provides training in psychometric assessment leading to the fulfillment of requirements for The British Psychological Society Register of Qualifications in Test Use – Levels 1 & 2 (previously BPS Level A & B Certificates of Competence in Occupational Testing). PsyAsia International was the first and is the longest established local provider of this course in Asia and we were also the first to offer full Online Training in Psychometric Testing leading to the BPS Level 1 & 2 Certification!

After successful completion of the course, delegates are qualified to order, administer, score, interpret and feedback on a complete range of ability and aptitude tests as well as multiple personality inventories (including assessments that PsyAsia does not offer). Successful delegates will also be able to apply for the British Psychological Society’s (BPS) RQTU Certification and the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations (EFPA) Level 2 Test User CertificateThis means the holder will be recognized internationally as having trained to the highest levels in the practical application of psychometric tests.

Psychometric Assessment at Work Course

Within PsyAsia International, our course which covers the requirements of the BPS Level 1 & 2 syllabus is known as the Psychometric Assessment at Work Course. We have been facilitating the BPS Level 1 & 2 Training in Singapore and Hong Kong since 2002. The course provides delegates with a firm grounding in the competent application of psychometric ability and personality tests. Competent use and understanding of the principles underlying these assessments is so important that PsyAsia International and most reputable psychometric test publishers do not allow access to them without this or a similar qualification. Be one of the few people in Asia to posses this level of competence in psychometric assessment and help us to set the bar higher for ethical, competent and best practice use of tests.
