Selection & Training for Organizations

This course is designed to help students use applied psychology in occupational selection and training.

Systematic methods of occupational selection and training are important as people differ in their abilities and characteristics, and jobs differ in the demands they place on people.

Systematic methods of selection help organisations achieve a good match between people, their tasks, and their work environment.

Training helps people get the best of their time spent on work through fine-tuning and enhancing skills, while providing their best to the organisation.
