BPS Ability & Personality Courses
What are these courses?
At ETC Consult, we have been running the BPS Certificate of Competence: Ability Assessment course (formerly known as Level A) and the BPS Certificate of Competence: Personality Assessment course (formerly known as Level B) for many years. By taking these courses, you will learn how to interpret and apply the best general ability, aptitudes, occupational interests and personality tests for career coaching, guidance, selection, development, leadership and self-actualisation purposes.
Our courses have been accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA) which has 35 member countries. Over 1,000 Career Guidance Counsellors and countless Talent Management Professionals, Psychologists, Therapists, Business Professionals and Consultants in Ireland have taken our BPS courses.
