The Open Learning Programme is a distance learning package for those working towards the BPS Certificate of Competence in Occupational Testing (Level A). This revised and updated edition includes all the necessary materials and information to prepare the user for 'Level A' assessment.

The programme comprises seven separate modules (three of which are in two parts), together with a Test Pack, Introductory Maths Pack, Glossary, a student's Assessment Portfolio and a Supplement of Test Reviews. Extensive use is made of examples, practical exercises, case study material and self-assessment questions.
