All Change! What do the BPS changes to Level A and B accreditation mean to you?

As of 5th September the British Psychological Society introduced a new set of standards for accreditation in the administration and interpretation of psychometric assessments. The BPS Level A and B accreditations have now been replaced with the Occupational Ability Test Use and Occupational Personality Test Use accreditations respectively. These new standards have been refined to align the qualifications with the European Qualifications Framework and bring the certifications up to date with modern test practices.
