About the Practice

The Practice was established in 2004, and has focused on managerial and leadership assessments for selection and development, as well as private career guidance testing. To date the Practice has provided assessments for nine major corporates, and completed about three hundred career guidance assessments.

The Practice's clients include:
Sea Harvest Corporation

The CB Foundation was created in 2018 to provide career guidance testing, and identification of high potential learners, for Grade 12 learners from disadvantaged schools. To date seventy learners have tested, nine high potential learners have been identified, and these nine learners have been referred for study bursary assistance.  

The distinguishing feature of the Practice is that we do comprehensive psychometric evaluations, which include cognitive ability, personality, competency and career focus, so as to obtain a holistic picture of the person. Our viewpoint is that only holistic assessments such as these can provide the best talent assessment and development results.    

The best practice principles for psychometric testing are used, as laid down by the Board for Psychology, Health Professions Council of South Africa. Testees are required to sign a consent form for psychometric testing; test results are strictly confidential; and the tests used are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. 
Disclaimer: The Practice is not legally responsible for any decisions taken by an individual testee, or a company, on the basis of the test results, whether this is for selection, development or guidance.
Booking Confirmation: To confirm a psychometric test booking, a 50% deposit is required. The remainder is payable on or before the day of testing. 

Medical Aid: The practice charges medical aid rates for career guidance testing. Clients are requested to pay the Practice, and then submit their invoice to medical aid. Please check with your medical aid regarding payment for psychometric testing).
