Training Routes to Becoming A Quintax User

Rapid Qualification Routes to Quintax Use - Including New E-Learning Options!

  • If you have no qualifications in psychometric assessment you can complete a 1.5 day Quintax Qualifying Training Course to become a Quintax Authorised User.  This includes a Starter Pack as part of the course fee of £750 + VAT.  The Starter Pack contains a Quintax User Guide, a Quintax Interpretation Guide, and an on-line account with 100 usage units (depending on reports, enough to assess up to 5 people).
  • If you are already qualified as a user of a personality questionnaire, you can start working with Quintax straightaway.  All you need to do to become a Quintax Authorised User is to purchase a Starter Pack (described above) for £400 + VAT and you can begin assessing people immediately.  In addition, you will receive FREE optional attendance at a Quintax Conversion Training Course (1 day).  The training course provides a quick way to try out Quintax and get an overview of its use and outputs.
  • Full E-Learning alternatives now exist for both the Quintax Qualifying Course and the Quintax Conversion Course.  Each course comes with a starter pack and is completed on-line with video-conferencing and full tutorial support for feedback and other exercises.

BPS Routes to Quintax Use

  • If you have no qualifications but would like to follow a British Psychological Society route, you can complete this with us via our BPS Test User Ability course (includes Assistant Test User training), followed by our BPS Test User Personality (Quintax) course.  Each of the 2 courses lasts 2 days and is priced at £995 + VAT per course (including Starter Pack) when booked together.  The TUP course is priced at £1195 + VAT when booked on its own.
  • If you are already registered with the BPS as a Test User Ability on their Register of Qualifications in Test Use, you can join us just for our Test User Personality (Quintax) course mentioned above.
  • 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 use Quintax immediately by purchasing a Starter Pack as described above for £400 + VAT. This gives you a FREE optional training day along with the two Quintax manuals and on-line account.
  • 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 Training Course (1 day) as part of this process. This BPS registration route is priced at £550 + VAT as it includes a Starter Pack (with all the elements already described) and a portfolio of assessment exercises for the BPS TUP 'Additional Instrument Quintax' qualification. Being a BPS Verified Assessor, SR&A can sign you off for the qualification if you complete it successfully, but you must be TUP qualified and registered with the BPS as a pre-requisite.
