Structure of the course

Mastering a subject like Psychometrics can not be done in few days of workshop only. That is why we have developed this unique blended learning methodology. Total course duration is 06 weeks (for Level-1 and Level-2 both) which includes 1 week of pre-workshop online learning, 4 weeks of post workshop online learning and 3 days intensive training workshop organized either as an in-house company workshop or as a public workshop in major cities. Till now the programs are conducted in New Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai.
