Why the need for this psychometric course?
We know from research that well designed and reputable psychometric tests are incredibly useful in candidate selection and employee development as well as in team-building, coaching and career development. However, in order to be useful such tests need to be administered properly. Deviation from standardised test administration, errors in scoring, improper storage or use of test data or simply not giving respondents the information they need can all lead to a reduction in test reliability and validity. This effectively makes the test useless and can have huge negative impacts upon you, your company and the respondent. The content from this course prevents these issues by teaching you how to effectively prepare for and administer psychometric assessments.
What about the time commitment?
The course is divided into 4 Modules and the video play times are listed below, along with estimated time to complete assessments. Keep in mind that everybody is different and some will pause the video and take notes, whilst others will watch a video outright. You may need substantially more time than noted below if you prefer to take your time learning. Those on our Independent Mode of Learning will have 90-days to complete this Level of the course, whilst those in our Supported Intakes will have 4 weeks of training, plus 2 further weeks to finalise assessments.
-Module 1: 90 mins.
-Module 2: 125 mins.
-Module 3: 106 mins.
-Module 4: 30 mins.
Total = Approximately 6 hours of video

Will the course work on my system?
Yes! We use the same platform used by the world’s top Universities and our videos stream from a world renowned content partner. You should be able to access everything on your PC, Mac, tablet and smartphone devices. When completing quizzes we recommend doing so on a full screen device for obvious reasons.
What Students Say About Our BPS Level 1 Online Psychometrics Training
Don’t just take it from us, let our valued students do the talking!
Online Training Modes - Fees - Registration
Our Independent Mode is a discounted option for those who prefer to learn principally at their own pace and who are unlikely to need interaction and support with other students or tutors. Independent Mode provides 90 days of access to EACH Level of the Psychometric Assessment at Work Course that you have signed up for. A generous additional discount is available for registering for all 3 Levels up-front. In this case, you will receive a 90-day enrollment in Level 1 initially. Once you have completed that, we will add a 90-day enrollment in Level 2 Ability, and once that is complete, we will add your 90-day enrollment in Level 2 Personality. Once your enrollment expires for a particular Level, you need to upload your portfolio of work to our secure server within 14 days for assessment.
Enrollment includes one-time assessment of your portfolio of work for the BPS certification. Additional but very reasonable fees will apply for one-on-one telephone/skype sessions with our psychologist for additional coaching and, fees may also apply for remarking work that does not meet the required standards and for work submitted outside of deadlines.
Our Supported Intake Mode is more similar to traditional teaching. Here, rather than commencing the course on your own when you are ready, you instead join a particular Intake Group. The Online course will commence on the published date and each week, we will focus on one or two Modules. The Module(s) will comprise a number of training videos. Having watched these videos, you can then participate in our online forums with the other students of your intake to discuss the content and learn from each other and you can attempt our self-review quizzes to test your learning. Course tutors will log into the forums at least once per week and will either respond to the questions by reply, or use the questions to guide additional "RealTime" Videos or Webinars to cement learning.
Our Supported Intake Mode is approximately 20% more expensive than our Independent Mode, but as you can see, you will benefit not only from the convenience of taking the course anywhere you like Online, but you will additionally benefit from the ongoing support of both students and tutors. As you move through each week of the course, you will complete various parts of your workbook and assessed practical exercises. You will then upload your portfolio of work to our secure server within 7 days of the end of the Level of the Online course that you have completed. Overall, the Supported Intake Mode takes approximately 6 months to complete and runs just once per year. Please ask us for the full timetable for the next intake for full details of dates,
