"Andy and all the team at KCP Ltd provide a first rate service for companies who wish to use psychometric tests within their selection or development programmes. Their expertise, training and support make them second to none. I have no hestitation in recommending Andy and the team at KCP Ltd."
"KCP is highly recommended. They are a friendly team and respond quickly to any questions you may have. The online materials, exercises and case studies are of the highest quality: very well structured and gradually guide you through this extensive learning journey. As a leadership development consultant, I have been very well supported, encouraged and gently motivated to reach the finishing line and complete this important professional qualification - RQTU. I really appreciated being able to work at my own pace and not feel pressured by having to meet target completion dates which is so important when you’re working as a freelancer. Thank you so much KCP – it’s been a delight working with you. Kathy Bachler, Director, Future Focus Consulting Ltd"
"I am so happy I found KCP's totally online training course for the BPS RQTU certificates in ability/personality testing. I needed to learn at a distance and Hong Kong to England is certainly that. KCP's staff are truly helpful and patient with all queries. The teaching material is very interesting, easy to comprehend and logically organised. I actually enjoyed doing these courses. I can highly recommend this course to anyone with or without distance learning needs."
