Each country has its own testing qualification procedures:


The British Psychological Society issues five levels of certificates to trained test users who have undergone a training course with a verified assessor:

UK: Test Administration

UK: Level A (Ability and Aptitude Testing)

UK: Level B Intermediate (Personality Testing): (Competency in ONE Personality Measure)

UK: Level B: Intermediate plus (Competency in a Second or subsequent "Sufficiently Different" Personality Measure)

UK: Level B: Full (Competency in Test Choice, Test Evaluation and completion of a Diary Record and Project Report)

Anyone can take these courses regardless of previous qualifications. Level A is a pre-requisite to Level B.
