Psychometric Certification FAQs
Unlike in India, in most countries of the western world, psychometric testing is usually tightly regulated. People and teams using these tests need to have developed competence and have their competence verified. Often, regulators require test administrators to obtain certifications like ours as a proof of verified competence.
Secondly, after certification, your name will be included in the certifying organization’s registry of psychometric testing administrators. That can lead to higher credibility and more work opportunities.
Finally, this course ends with membership in groups of highly qualified psychology and Human Resources professionals. Access to that network can help you continue your learning and professional growth.
Our certification program focuses on the design and administration of many psychological tests. We do not promote or prescribe any specific test. Instead, we help students understand how these tests work. We discuss intelligence, aptitude, personality, preferences, values, motivations and other human traits and how they can be assessed. With such a well-developed understanding, you will be able to administer and interpret many psychometric tests.
Some of the tests we discuss include:
– IQ tests
– EQ tests
– Workplace Personality Inventory
– Leadership Styles
– Personality Types
We do not provide questionnaires and scoring keys. Those must be obtained through test designers.
We provide participants with free online access to our professional psychometric assessment tools, which they can use to complete assignments and activities during the course. We also use several practice tests and scoring keys in the classroom. The goal of our program is not to sell tests, but to help professionals master the process of psychometric assessment.
After becoming certified, we recommend participants purchase tests from publishers who meet their requirements and budgets.
British Psychological Society-verified assessors teach courses for students seeking BPS certification.
For Indian Institute of Business Psychology certification, faculty nominated by the IIBP conduct courses.
Our staff are well-known in the field of psychometrics and have been actively involved in research, training, and consulting on psychometric tests for decades. Further, we invite outside experts to train participants on specialty subjects.
The course lasts six weeks. It begins with a week of online learning. Next, participants attend a three-day workshop either in-person or over zoom (or google meet). Finally, they complete about 30 more days of online coursework.
We developed this program outline based on input from participants who found the online work took about a month to complete. Students may finish the course sooner if they complete all online activities and pass the final assessment. They may also take longer than six weeks, since online access to our materials lasts for one year.
