People Test x-tend

People Test X-tend (PTX) certification gives you the competencies to analyse and decode the darker traits of a candidate’s personality – also known as risk behaviour. The PTX analysis has been developed as a supplement to a personality analysis, and it is therefore also a requirement that you are an experienced user of People Test Person (PTP) in order to register for the PTX certification. The PTX analysis can be used for both recruitment and development tasks, and the certification is particularly relevant if you are testing people for positions that are relational in nature and have a high impact on other people. For example, sales people, consultants, and especially managers.

PTX Certification

Target group
