This course has been designed for busy professionals who need to use psychometric tests for Human Resource related decisions. It is suitable for those working as HRM Managers or Officers, Line Managers, Business Managers and Leaders, Careers Advisers, Coaches, Counselors and so on.
Whilst we recommend that anybody using psychometric tests for decision-making undertake our higher level Psychometric Assessment at Work Course, not everybody has time to do so. This course meets a need for those who want to use tests very soon and who do not want or have time for in-depth study. The course combines easy to understand knowledge components with practical demonstrations using Online Psychometric Systems which students will be given access to. We make use of online meeting platforms to enable screen sharing and breakout rooms where students can practice in partnerships and receive supervision and guidance from the psychologist facilitator as they progress.
The course runs as a LIVE course which students are highly encouraged to attend. However, for those unable to make the live session times, every session gets recorded and made available for on-demand viewing at the student's convenience.
By the end of the course, students will have a comfortable understanding of psychometric tests of aptitude and personality in terms of how they work, their limitations, how to interpret computer-generated test reports and how to feedback and gather additional evidence from psychometric test candidates.
Those who complete the course assignments (end of Unit Quizzes, Final Exam and Practical Assessments) to the required standard will receive a certificate signed by our award-winning registered psychologist and will also be qualified to order The Psychometric Portal and The Identity Self-perception Questionnaire from PsyAsia International. This will provide you with access to a number of tests used in HR decision-making.
