Specialist in Test Use is recognised as an expert level qualification by all test publishers. It gives considerable extra credibility to those who wish to specialise in psychometrics and the advanced applications of tests and questionnaires.
The Specialist in Test Use certificate is the highest level of qualification in occupational testing that the British Psychological Society (BPS) offers.
It is for those who hold BPS qualifications in a variety of different tests, both ability and personality. It is not only an expert level qualification, it shows that the holder is experienced in the use of personality questionnaires and can offer critical advice to others on the application of a wide range of psychometric instruments.
The course provides delegates with advanced competencies in test choice and evaluation. On the course you will learn to spot the omissions and weaknesses in technical manuals from a range of publishers. After the course you will need to complete a diary record and project report in order to demonstrate application of your knowledge in practical settings.
