Hogan Certification Training

Hogan Level 1 Certification Accreditation

This official Hogan Assessments certification workshop Level 1 is suitable for professionals working in the people development field. The workshop is non-residential and run over 2 days. It provides an accelerated learning approach that enables participants to administer and interpret the three Hogan personality inventories:


The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) is an assessment that reveals a person’s core values, goals and interests. Results indicate which type of position, job and environment will be most engaging and satisfying for the employee.


The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) is a measure of normal personality and is used to predict job performance.The HPI is an ideal tool to help you strengthen your employee selection, leadership development, succession planning, and talent management processes.


The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) identifies personality-based performance and derailment risks of interpersonal behaviour. These behavioural tendencies negatively impact an individual’s leadership style, actions and ability to maintain interpersonal relationships.



No prior psychometric accreditation is required for attendance.

The workshop focuses on deep interpretation of results, firstly for each assessment instrument and secondly across all three assessments, to generate your interpretative insight and confidence quickly. Various case study results are considered against particular job roles throughout the workshop to practice interpretation and explore implications. On day 2, participants will be invited to practice providing feedback using Hogan Assessments and begin engaging in real business application.

The Hogan Certification Level 1 now available in London, Daventry, Manchester and Edinburgh.
