This training course will lead to the British Psychological Society (BPS) Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU) for Ability tests (formerly Level A) and Personality tests (formerly Level B) in occupational settings. These certificates are also recognised by the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA). The course is organised by the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre and meets the professional guidelines of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). The BPS Certificates are the established qualifications for anyone seeking career development in HR management. They are also a sought-after qualification for those involved in professional psychological consultancy.

Our course combines both the Ability (Level A) and Personality (Level B) certificates into one course over 4 days. We begin at 9am and finish at 5pm every day, Monday to Thursday. No prior knowledge of psychometrics is required to participate.

Please note: this course is accredited by the BPS and not by the University of Cambridge. Delegates attending the course will receive a Certificate of Attendance from the Psychometrics Centre logo and, on submission of a completed portfolio to the course instructor (which will be marked), may apply for the RQTU.
