BPA/P National Competency Test Launch

To ensure the hiring of qualified people in Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) firms in the country, the Business Processing Outsourcing of the Philippines (BPAP) together with Assessment Analytics, Inc, the country's exclusive distributor of Previsor, the world's leader in competency-based online assessment, launched the BPAP national competency test (BNCT) at the Mandarin Hotel, 10 A.M. today. The BNCT is a 2 1/2 hour computer aided exam that comprises of tests in Learning Ability, English Language Proficiency, Perceptual Speed and Accuracy, Computer Literacy and Service Orientation. Secretary Ray Roxas-Chua III of BPAP was the first person to sample the BNCT and the test was administered by yours truly :) This competency test aims to make the recruitment process both for firms and the applicant more efficient, from the large number of graduates that wish to apply and career shifters, this makes it easier for firms to target their applicants and get better results of what they want making the screening process faster at the entry level.

I would like to express my gratitude to Assessment Analytics, Inc (where I'm currently having my internship) for giving me this opportunity to take part in this momentous event that would change the course of the recruitment process of the BPO industry in the Philippines.

    Nice article Alvin. I wish I was there to see the whole momentous event. This was once just a dream but now Sir Oja and Ms.Liza's vision is slowly becoming a reality. I sure hope more National Assessments would be handled by AAI...wala ba pictures ng event? Thanks Dane for assisting AAI!
