Training Routes to Becoming A Quintax User

Rapid Qualification Routes to Quintax Use

  • If you have no training in psychometric assessment, or if you are feeling rusty, you can complete a Quintax Qualifying Course by blended learning to become a Quintax Authorised User. The course fee includes a Quintax User Guide, a Quintax Interpretation Guide, and all the assessment usage units needed to fully complete the course exercises.
  • If you are already a regular trained user of a personality questionnaire, you can start working with Quintax straightaway.  We have a Quintax Conversion Course by blended learning that includes the same materials as in the Qualifying course, and this provides an efficient way of getting to know and use Quintax.  It covers the structure of Quintax, what it measures and how best to use it, and if you complete it you will have a chance to examine case studies, practise a short feedback, etc.  We advise all converters to take up the offer, however, if you are a very experienced personality assessor you can use our 'Contact Us' page to seek a discussion of alternative ways in which we can help you to get rapid access to Quintax.
  • Our blended learning courses involve studying and working through our learning materials on-line, with full tutorial contact provided by video-conferencing (Zoom or Teams) for general support and for practical exercises including feedback with Quintax.  Each course includes additional options for tutorial support, should they be needed, via our in-person support sessions (see training routes pages).

BPS Routes to Quintax Use

  • If you would like to follow a British Psychological Society route, you can complete this with us via our BPS Test User Ability course - this includes the Assistant Test User course - followed by our BPS Test User Personality (Quintax) course.  These are blended learning courses, and the course price includes all necessary materials for completion.
  • If you are already registered with the BPS as a Test User Ability on their Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU), you can join us just for our Test User Personality (Quintax) course by blended learning as described above.  You can also contact us for information and options if your RQTU membership has lapsed.
  • If you are already registered with the BPS as a Test User Personality based on another instrument then you count as a qualified user of another personality questionnaire and you can attend our Quintax Conversion course in order to become Quintax qualified. However, if you are an experienced personality assessor you can contact us if you would like to discuss alternative ways in which we could help you to use Quintax.
  • If you would like to register Quintax as an ‘Additional Instrument’ on the BPS Register of Qualifications in Test Use, then you must complete the Quintax Conversion Course as part of this process. The BPS registration route includes a portfolio of assessment exercises for the BPS TUP 'Additional Instrument Quintax' qualification.  As a BPS Verified Assessor, SR&A can affirm the competence of successful delegates for the BPS, but you must already be TUA qualified and registered with the BPS as a pre-requisite. Use our 'Contact Us' page if you would like to to discuss this option.
