Psychometrics for Human Resource Decisions

For full details of our Psychometrics for HR Decisions Course, please go here...

Designed for busy professionals who need to use psychometric tests for Human Resource related decisions. The course runs over 3 live sessions of 3-4 hours each (with breaks) and is suitable for those working as HRM Managers/Officers, Line Managers, Business Managers & Leaders, Careers Advisers, Coaches, Counsellors etc.

Whilst we recommend that anybody using psychometric tests for decision-making undertake our higher level Psychometric Assessment at Work Coursenot 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 and small virtual breakout room exercises using Online Psychometric Systems and reports which students will be given access to.

By the end of the online course, students will have a comfortable understanding of psychometric tests of aptitude and personality in terms of how they work, their limitations, reliability and validity, basic interpretation skills for computer-generated test reports, basic  feedback skills, and know how to gather additional evidence from psychometric test candidates and report all of this to decision-makers or use in HR decision-making.

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 from PsyAsia International. This will provide you with access to a number of tests used in HR decision-making.
