A Guide to Practitioner Requirements

EDAC deals exclusively with computer-based instruments that are supported via the Internet. Training is conducted in 2 to 5 day sessions depending on practitioner experience and the instruments to be used. There is normally a probationary period following initial training before full accreditation is granted.

Practitioners are likely to be experienced consultants and/or company or organisation HR professionals. There is normally no requirement for formal psychological training above and beyond the level equating to the British Psychological Society's Certificates of Competence in Occupational Testing. Any such training above this level is of course a significant bonus, and may indeed be a requirement of certain national regulatory bodies.
