Do I need to bring a laptop for the Psychometric Assessment at Work Course?

In order to qualify for the BPS Level 1 & 2 RQTU certificates, delegates complete workbooks (along with practical assessments).  The workbooks are rather lengthy and do require a fair amount of writing from the delegate to demonstrate their competence.  The standard required of responses to workbook questions has been set by the British Psychological Society. 

PsyAsia will accept your workbook submission either in pen or printed form.  If you do not like writing it is perhaps a good idea for you to have access to a laptop during the course.  You do not need to bring it with you each day, but will benefit from being able to use one in the evening.  Please note that should you decide to use a laptop (most people still opt for handwritten workbook responses!) you will need to print out your response and place it in the workbook at the relevant page.  When pasted in the workbook, the response must either not obscure the question itself - or, you will need to type out the question in full as well as your response.

The immense benefit of the workbook assessment technique is that you don't need to complete an exam.  You are assessed as you go along rather than on what you can cram and remember at the end of the course!

NOTE: If you do have access to a laptop, we strongly suggest you bring it with you on the 4th day of the course as this will save you time in the evening!
