Assessment practitioners will be glad to know that training on the 16pf® Questionnaire is now available online.

The 16pf® hardly requires introduction. With decades of data behind it, it is a valid and reliable personality assessment used to predict future behaviour and performance.

As a psychologist and psychometrist in Africa you are not required to attend certification training in order to be able to use the 16pf®. However, due to its complexity you might still wish to upskill yourself before using it. Especially if you are applying it in high-risk contexts such as executive selection.

We are now offering an eLearning course to assist you in understanding and mastering the 16pf®. This training course consists of a number of videos, each followed by a few questions, which aim at cementing your knowledge.

By the end of this course you should have gained a deeper understanding of the 16pf® and be able to confidently use this assessment for the purposes it was designed for.
