WACO, TX; April 26th 2012 — Profiles International headquarters hosted clients from all over the US for a certification training workshop.
Certification training for using assessments is a key component of working with Profiles International solutions. During the sessions, clients received in-depth training in all elements of the science behind assessments. Attendees learned how to use the products for maximum impact in their own organizations for activities such as benchmarking their employees.
In developing and selling assessments, there are strict rules and guidelines that must be followed. These are issued by government and professional associations, such as, The Association of Test Publishers and International Test Commissioners. These guidelines were established to ensure that all products are credible, reliable, and validated. Profiles International sees their job not only as creating and developing these assessments, but to certify all users and provide on-going support.
“Helping our clients improve their talent management decisions through use of assessments is one of the primary areas of our business,” said Bud Haney, president and co-founder of Profiles International. “We emphasize certification for those who use and administer our assessments because using them incorrectly can have very negative results. But if you know what you’re doing, the impact can be tremendous.”
Profiles International conducts studies over several years with clients across a variety of industries to establish predictive validity to ensure that the product produces the results that the client requires.
“A well informed user with a valid and reliable product will have a significantly better result than someone who is casual about it,” said Dr. Scott Hamilton, PhD, Chief Research Officer of Profiles International.
Profiles International’s employees are passionate about sharing what their solutions can do for organizations and are actively researching new products and tools to assist organizations in effectively hiring, training and developing the right person for the right job.
