Online psychometric training with a difference

Welcome to, the online Wing of PsyAsia International. We are a Psychological Assessment and Training Consultancy with global clients, based in Hong Kong since 2002. Our director is a UK and Australia trained multi-award-winning Chartered Psychologist and Chartered Scientist with a PhD in Psychology (through Psychometrics) and Masters Degrees in Organisational Psychology and Clinical Neuropsychology. He has been teaching for the BPS Psychometric Testing qualifications qualifications since the late 1990s. In 2008, PsyAsia International made our BPS Level A & B course available online and then in 2015, we released the updated, second iteration, BPS Level 1 & 2, and Supported Mode of the course. We are therefore highly experienced in online training for this course and know what works and what does not - and, importantly, our online course is not a transfer of a face-to-face course to a Zoom-like platform.

Our Express Online Supported Mode training for BPS Level 1 & 2 offers the same syllabus as our regular face-to-face and online training, with the benefit of covering all training over 6 days. Students attend professionally recorded presentations (no noisy children or dogs in the background!) at the time set in the timetable available in our event app - with a direct link to the video. Dr Tyler will be available for the entire duration of every training day. Students can ask questions in the app as the presentations progress and these questions will be added by our psychologist for discussion at the multiple Live Webinars scheduled throughout each day. 

For those unable to commit to the 6-days of the Express Course, we also offer an Extended Supported Mode Course over 5 months or an Independent Mode of Learning with 90 days for each of the 3 Levels.

We will send pre-course work comprising approximately one hour of reading, five+ hours of videos, and a personality assessment one week prior to the course. Do please ensure that you set aside 6-8 hours to complete this in the week leading up to the course as it's essential to do this work to ensure your on-time course progression.

  • Able to understand spoken and written English and to communicate verbally in English.
  • Computer with stable internet connection, microphone and headset.
  • Available for the full 6 days of training (no other commitments); able to complete pre-course work independently before course; able to complete follow-up assessments without support within 1 month of end of course.
  • Motivation to learn about psychometrics at work, not just looking to gain a certificate! This is an intensive professional course and requires active commitment and determination.
  • This course is not suitable for those who are unable to be fully committed to the course for the pre-course work and for the 6 training days, or for those who have difficulty managing assignments set to them. Please do not register for the course if you are unable to commit to this requirement 😊. 

Students will be given access to our regular online learning centre (same as that used by top Universities) where they can watch all course videos on demand and access all other training materials and assessment instructions. Additionally, our Meeting App gives students easy access to the course presentations along with the timetable. Inside of the App, students can ask questions at any point, connect with other students and receive course updates as push notifications from PsyAsia International.

One of the issues faced during COVID was that training providers moved courses to Zoom and similar applications. Zoom sound quality is not optimal, and worse still there may be lagging and background noise. Our training presentations are professionally recorded with studio quality sound and video, and our video streaming optimizes delivery for your network speed. Students therefore study in peace and are more engaged in quality educational content. After the main learning in a few Units, we meet in a modern webinar application for live Q&A and discussion - and even breakout into small virtual groups to undertake practicals and more fine tuned discussion. This way, we limit "Zoom-fatigue", optimise the learning phase and yet enable interaction and safe practice of new skills with direct feedback from the psychologist-facilitator.

Students are given access to our event website and app before the course starts. All course timings display there in your local time. Until then, you may check the start time in your locality here. Course days last between 6.5 to 8.5 hours and have short refreshment breaks as well as a one hour meal break each day.

We schedule breaks throughout the training as well as a one hour break half way through each day.

Do kindly ensure that you are available for all 6 days of the course if you wish to register for the Express Online Course. This is important to ensure that you do not fall behind, and that you do not inconvenience other students whom you may have been grouped with to work on tasks. If you do encounter unforeseen difficulties once the course has started, we will move you to our Independent Mode of Learning (there will be no additional fee or refund). You will then have 90 days to complete each Level of the course, but no support will be available. Moving Modes is only available during the 6 course days and only for exceptional, unforeseen circumstances.

Please visit the course registration page to view currently available tickets/fees. We look forward to welcoming you to our innovative and immersive psychometric assessment at work online training course.

For those who don't wish to be assessed for the British Psychological Society qualification, we offer a variant of the course where assessments are by way of only online quizzes and final exams for each of the 3 course Levels. Upon passing, attendees will receive a PDF certificate signed by our multi-award-winning Registered Psychologist. All training remains the same.

Students who wish to be assessed for the BPS Level 1 & 2 qualification are given a workbook to complete for each Level of the course. This is a formal assessment of competence for the British Psychological Society. The workbook must be completed to the required standard. We strongly encourage students to complete as much of the workbook as possible DURING the course so that any questions or gaps in understanding can be addressed. After the course, there is a one-month period for completion of the entire assessment portfolio. This is known as a formal assessment period and so no support is offered during this time.
