Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) February 1, 2006
Hogan Assessment Systems (HAS), the industry leader in personality-based employee selection and development tools, today announced its 2006 Hogan Certification Workshop schedule. Due to high demand, HAS is tripling the number of two-day workshops and offering them in more cities throughout the continental United States.
The workshops are tailored for executive coaches, HR directors or generalists, organizational development or training professionals, and industrial/organizational psychologists that are looking to become certified in the administration, interpretation, and implementation of HAS assessments.
“The Hogan Certification Workshop allows coaches, HR practitioners, and psychologists to gain a more thorough understanding of all three Hogan assessments,” said Rodney Warrenfeltz, Ph.D., managing partner of Hogan Assessment Systems. “Customers who successfully complete the certification can perform all their employee assessment and development activities in-house. This includes providing feedback to assessed employees, which is typically the most complex portion of the assessment process,” Warrenfeltz said.
The workshops, conducted by Warrenfeltz and Dr. Daniel Paulk, will provide attendees with an in-depth understanding of how to administer, interpret and implement the HAS suite of products — the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI); the Hogan Development Survey (HDS); and the Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI). Between them, Warrenfeltz and Paulk bring 35 years of business/organizational psychology and executive assessment experience to the program, ensuring all participants will receive the highest level of training and learn real-world applications of the assessments.
Day one of the workshop provides attendees with an extensive tutorial on two inventories, HPI and HDS. Day two continues the tutorial on another inventory, MVPI, applies the information used in day one by conducting detailed interpretation and analysis of assessment results in group and individual settings, and wraps up with best practices for providing feedback to assessed individuals, as well as the best methods for implementing programs with HAS assessments. Upon completion of the two-day workshop and successful demonstration of data interpretation and feedback proficiency post-workshop, participants will be certified by HAS in the use of the HPI, HDS, and MVPI for employee selection and development.
Prior to the workshop, HAS provides participants with the opportunity to take three assessments and receive personal feedback on their assessment results from an HAS consultant. After the workshop, each will have ongoing access to the latest publications and research articles written by HAS, electronic copies of all technical manuals, and free setup on HAS’ Web-based assessment management system (WAM) to administer assessments and receive online reports. Additionally, once certified, participants will get ongoing support from HAS consultants for difficult assessment interpretations or implementation questions. Workshop participants can also obtain eight continuing education credits from the American Psychological Association upon successful completion of the workshop.
