WorkKeys Job Profiling Training

The WorkKeys® Job Profiling Training program teaches you the process for collecting information and determining the skills and skill levels necessary for job performance.

Qualifications Required

To become an authorized job profiler, an individual must successfully complete an intensive training program conducted by industrial/organizational psychologists. This program consists of six weeks of guided self-study, using materials provided by ACT, and a 3.5-day training workshop. Individuals who participate in the training program must have qualifying knowledge and/or experience and submit an application.

Qualifications include the following:

  • Individuals should have two to three years of experience with job analysis and other human resource issues (such as selection and training). Individuals with less experience and an advanced degree, such as a master’s degree or doctorate in human resources, industrial/organizational psychology, labor relations, management, or a related area, will be considered in some cases.
  • Because job profiling requires working with individuals of diverse backgrounds and expertise and eliciting accurate information from them about their jobs, applicants are expected to have successful experience working as group facilitators.
  • All applicants must provide their own laptop computer and portable printer; they should have sufficient computer keyboarding skills to edit material as they facilitate group discussions.
