BPS and EFPA Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU)

The Psychometrics Centre runs 5-day professional training courses leading to the British Psychological Society (BPS) Register for Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU) for Ability tests (formerly Level A) and Personality tests (formerly Level B) in occupational settings. These certificates are also recognized by the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA). 

For most psychometric test publishers, the possession of a RQTU is mandatory for those individuals and HR departments who wish to use their tests. As well as the professional certificate, candidates are also provided with a Certificate of Attendance bearing the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre logo.

These courses, which include both ability testing and personality testing, take place Live Online via Zoom and in Cambridge several times a year. They meet the professional guidelines of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the International Test Commission (ITC), and are the established qualification for anyone seeking career development in Human Resource management. BPS accreditation is also a much sought-after qualification by those involved in professional psychological consultancy services such as coaching, mentoring or counselling.
