Short Course on Behaviour Profiling

$199.00 Inc GST

Behavioural Profiling in Recruitment, Educational, Criminal Behaviour and Marketing

Learn more about the use of psychological and behavioural profiling in a wide range of settings.  A profile helps us to find out more about a person, what they are really like, their characteristics and personality.  We often assume that behavioural profiling is used mainly in the field of criminal behaviour, but psychological profiling can also be used in a wide range of other areas, such as –

  • Is this person the right candidate for the job?
  • What careers would suit this person?
  • Does this child or adult have a specific educational need?
  • What customers will buy this product?
  • How will a customer buy this product?
  • Does this person have a personality disorder, such as Antisocial Personality Disorder?
  • Does this person have the right aptitude and skills for this job?
  • Does this person have a clinical condition?
  • Does this person have the skills and personality required for a promotion?

Psychological profiling can help us to learn more about people and find out whether they are the right candidate for the job, whether they have educational needs, whether they show criminal tendencies and how we can market our goods and services to a particular group of people.

How does it work?

At the end of each lesson, you will be given a short interactive test to undertake, which will provide an indication of how your learning is progressing. Upon completing the very last lesson, you will be offered a more thorough automated test or examination. This final assessment can be undertaken at any time of day or night; and any day of the week; and if you achieve an overall pass (60% or more); you will be able to obtain a “certificate of completion” with your name and completion date on it.

Note: these short courses are self-guided online courses and are not to be confused with tutor-supported online courses.
