Level B assessment tool

The EQ-i is now the EQ-i 2.0. It’s a Level B psychometric and, as such, requires that one meet the academic requirements to use a Level B assessment tool OR that they take the EQ-i 2.0 Certification Course. I have met people who were using the EQ-i 2.0 as a result of meeting the academic requirements and, unfortunately, they were not adequately prepared to leverage some of the more sophisticated aspects of the EQ-i 2.0.

We offer the EQ-i 2.0 Certification Course in a number of cities as an open enrollment course and is regularly invited to deliver custom, in-house courses which saves organizations on travel and accommodation expenses and ensures that an organization’s unique needs are met.
