BPS Level 1 & 2 Psychometrics Course

EXTENDED SUPPORTED MODE ONLINE PSYCHOMETRIC TRAINING COURSE for all professionals involved in assessing people at work.

Next Intake TBC

What is Extended Supported Mode BPS Psychometrics Accreditation?

We have been facilitating the BPS Level 1 & 2 Test User Course (formerly BPS Level A and B) since the late 1990s and have offered online training for this BPS Psychometrics Accreditation since 2008.

Our Extended Supported Mode offers “drip” training over approximately 5 months, with support from other students in your intake, and via weekly online live sessions with the multi-award-winning, Registered Psychologist Course Facilitator.

Hours of professionally recorded videos, with production quality sound, result in an engaging learning experience. Well thought-out quizzes, enable students to receive instant feedback, whilst discussion forums, where sharing with other students takes place, allow students to question and discuss their learning. The learning experience culminates each week in a 2-hour psychologist-led Live Webinar where we go through forum posts and student questions, and practice a number of the taught components in small virtual breakout rooms.

This mode of learning is best for those students who wish to learn, over a period of time, from the comfort of their office or home (or even during their commute!) and who prefer to feel part of a group of others learning at the same time, whilst receiving regular support from the course director. It also assists those who have difficulty achieving outcomes from online learning when regular milestone deadlines are not set.

Alternative Modes of Learning

Express Supported Mode
6 Days of Supported Training.

Independent Mode
Self-paced study over 90 days per Level.

Completely Online Learning for your BPS Psychometrics Accreditation

The entire course is facilitated online. Log-in to watch professionally recorded psychometric training videos any time you like before the weekly deadline.

A real course, not just reading!

Our course is unique in that it is a full, video-based experience. Every single video reflects what is taught on our real-world psychometric training that we deliver to our demanding multinational and government clients. The only difference is that each video is professionally recorded for an online audience. This is not a Zoom-based course!

Weekly webinars and breakout groups just for your intake!

During every learning week of the course there is a webinar where you will meet other students from around the world to discuss questions raised from the weekly modules and to practice what you have learned in smaller virtual break-out rooms. Webinars typically last 2 hours.

Timetable helps to meet assessment requirements

Students are informed each week about what work they need to complete before the next week. This helps to keep them on track.

Same platform as top Universities

Yes, we use the same professional, tried and tested platform as the world’s top Universities to deliver the course content.

Non-BPS Variant

For those who don’t wish to be assessed for the BPS RQTU Level 1 & 2 and Euro Test User Certificate, you may opt (at checkout) to enjoy the exact same course but without the need to complete workbook assignments. Instead, you are assessed online via quizzes and some group assessments during the webinars. Assuming you pass, you will still receive a PsyAsia International PDF Certificate signed by our award-winning Registered Psychologist.

Experienced Psychologist

Your course director is a BPS award-winning Registered and Chartered Psychologist (Occupational Psychology & Clinical Neuropsychology) with almost 25 years’ experience of teaching this course in different parts of the world from the UK to China, Malaysia, Singapore, Africa and the UAE. He has been teaching the course online since 2005.

Support from co-students

Because everybody starts at the same time, has the same deadlines, and participates in the same forum discussions each week, each student is part of a cohort which supports each other. Note that students are not permitted to discuss actual assessment questions with each other but they are encouraged to discuss any and every topic taught.

Support from course tutor

Your psychologist course director is also your tutor and checks forum posts at least once weekly. He then responds to these either in the forum, or more typically at the weekly webinar. This cements knowledge and learning further and ensures students feel engaged.
PsyGOLD CPD in Psychometrics

PsyGOLD membership even after graduation

We’re big on relationships in our part of the world and so when you register with us, you are starting a relationship with us which continues beyond the course. We enrol you in our PsyGOLD program where you will continue to be invited to webinar presentations from other students and Dr Tyler even after graduation. At these sessions, in addition to continuously learning from others, you can ask us anything that comes to mind as you begin to practice psychometric testing at work with real people. You will learn further by listening to our course director’s responses, not only to your questions, but to those of our other students and graduates.


We have listed briefly our most frequently asked questions here.

Feel free to get in touch via live chat or give us a call if you have other questions.

When will the next intake start?

We have just one intake per year for this course. Kindly register your interest in order to be advised of the next intake.

How does the course work?

Everything is very similar to our regular online Psychometric Assessment at Work Course. However, instead of having a deadline of 90 days to complete each of the 3 course levels, you will complete 1-2 Modules per week with a short break between each Level, and the course will continue over the period of time noted in the course timetable (usually takes around 5 months to complete the entire course).

You will watch the videos required for a particular week and participate in forums with your co-students, as well as complete short quizzes (which the system will score immediately) and answer questions in your workbook. Provided students have engaged as expected in the forums, the course director will meet you at weekly webinars to discuss the forum questions and practice the knowledge learned in small virtual rooms.

At the end of each Level, you submit your workbook and practical assignments (video-recorded) and we will mark these prior to your next course Level. At the end of the entire course, successful students will be recommended to the BPS for all 3 Levels of the BPS Psychometrics Accreditation, will be invoiced by the BPS for certification, and to go on the Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU). Students may also apply to the EFPA for an additional certificate in psychometrics. Kindly view the regular course page for fuller details and entire course syllabus.

Do I need to be available at specific times?

It is highly advisable that you are available for the weekly webinars because you will interact with others and practice new skills. The webinar day and time stays constant throughout the course, so you will be able to plan accordingly. Outside of that, you just need to manage your time to ensure you meet the weekly deadlines (videos, quiz, forum participation, workbook entries). In the event that you have an unforeseen issue and are not able to attend the webinar live, you may refer to the webinar recording which is posted within 24 hours. However, this should happen no more than once per course Level in order not to inconvenience other students who may have been assigned to work with you in virtual rooms.

What do I need to have to ensure I can complete the course?

You will need a reasonable speed internet connection and a laptop or PC for accessing the course. You can also access the course via a mobile app and this is fine for viewing videos and posting to forums, but we recommend you complete course quizzes on a larger screen. You will see a webcam and microphone for the Live webinars during the course.

What if I cannot keep up with the deadlines?

If you are unable to meet the deadline during a week of the course, you may simply catch up the following week but you will fall slightly behind and not benefit from real-time discussions. If you fall behind by two weeks and are unable to take immediate action to catch up, we may recommend that you move to our Independent Mode course.

Are there any other fees to pay?

1. All students need to pay our course fee.

2. There is an option (for an additional fee) for us to send paper-based materials to you for 2 of the assessments which you will undertake. However, you can easily prepare these materials yourself and so most students do not add this option.

3. The course fee includes ONE time marking of your workbook for each Level. Where workbooks do not meet the standard and we need to remark them, we may apply charges for this. Where the amount of remarking is minimal, we do not charge provided the work is returned promptly.

4. After you graduate, you will need to pay the BPS in order to be entered onto the Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU) and receive the BPS Psychometrics Accreditation.

Are there any refunds?

Sorry, like most online training providers we do not offer refunds. We are happy to try to offer advice if you are facing difficulties, or move you to the Independent Mode course if you feel that is better for you.

If you’re not sure which mode suits you, you may enroll in the Supported Mode and then downgrade to the Independent Mode at any time. However, note that we do not provide any refunds for those who downgrade.
