What is Accreditation?

To use Facet5, practitioners need to have successfully undertaken a 2-day accreditation program, run by a Facet5 training provider. The course covers the history and development of Facet5, how it compares to other tools in the market, what the factors are and how important they are for describing and explaining different behaviour. There is also a big emphasis on how to interpret and debrief profiles, with a lot of practice and feedback opportunities given in class time. The course is enjoyable, highly interactive and participants leave being able to interpret and debrief, but also with a greater knowledge of personality assessment in general, and how this applies to work and to achieving business outcomes.


Participants will leave with the ability to understand and debrief a Facet5 profile, using a process that effectively engages the client. They will also be able to administer and download their own profiles from the Facet5 system. Participants will also have access to research and tools to support them in their use of Facet5 once accredited.

Who should attend?

The course is open to any person working the field of HR, OD, coaching, psychology, leadership development or related fields. No specific prior knowledge or experience is needed, although healthy curiosity will help. Some pre-reading is required although this is not difficult or lengthy.

When and where

Accreditation courses are run frequently around the globe, and can also be arranged at specific workplaces on demand. For open courses please refer to the global training calendar.
