The Psychometrics Centre

Cambridge Judge Business School

We run a 4-day accredited training course leading to the British Psychological Society Register of Qualifications in Test Use. This covers the use of ability and personality tests in occupational settings. The RQTU is recognised by the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA) and by other international bodies.

Upcoming RQTU courses

The course includes content on both ability testing and personality testing. It meets the professional guidelines of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the International Test Commission (ITC) and is the established qualification for anyone seeking career development in Human Resource management. For most psychometric test publishers, the possession of a RQTU certificate is mandatory for individuals and HR departments who wish to use their tests. BPS accreditation is also a sought-after qualification by those involved in professional psychological consultancy services such as coaching, mentoring or counselling.

Courses take place in person in Cambridge or Live Online via Zoom several times a year. In addition to the professional certificate, candidates receive a Certificate of Attendance bearing the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre logo.

  • Ability (formerly Level A):  The course covers all the underlying principles and practice for the application of ability testing for recruitment and staff development in an organisation. As well as learning the significance of basic testing concepts such as reliability, validity, standardisation and equivalence, candidates practice the fundamentals of testing etiquette, including how to provide a fair testing environment, how to meet the legal requirements, the essentials of report writing and the challenging task of providing feedback to candidates. This is an ideal course for HR and other professionals who wish to apply the benefits of psychometric testing within their organisation or as a consultant.
  • Personality (formerly Level B): The course builds on the basic knowledge taught in Level A. Level B training introduces you to personality testing, a key technology in staff development, organisational change, restructuring and senior appointments. The Level B element focuses on the workbased personality test Orpheus and the integrity test Giotto. The course will enable you to use and interpret Orpheus as well as provide you with transferable knowledge and skills in the areas of work personality and feeding back personal information.
