Structure of the course
This is a competency based course aimed at developing competencies required to qualified for IIBP Level-1 and Level-2 in Psychometric Testing. Mastering a subject like Psychometric Testing can not be done in few days of workshop only. Achieving a certificate of competence from IIBP requires display of competence in psychometric testing. That is why we have developed this unique blended learning methodology. Total course duration is 06 weeks (for Level-1 and Level-2 combined) which includes 1 week of pre-workshop online learning, 4 weeks of post workshop online learning and 3 days intensive psychometric training workshop organized either as an in-house company workshop or as a public workshop in major cities, or workshop over online video-conceferencing.
