Pearson Clinical Assessment adheres to strict ethical guidelines for standardised test and assessment use. A central principle of professional test use is that individuals should use only those tests for which they have the appropriate training and expertise. This training has been designed to support individuals required by their organisation to use these assessments in becoming qualified administrators of User Level B assessments.
