Introducing India's first certification program on the Strong Interest Inventory®, an instrument providing research validated insights on discovering vocations.

Online PR News – 24-June-2016 – Mumbai, India – Anahat Organisation Development Consultancy, an industry leader in training and organisational development tools, including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator┬« (MBTI┬«) assessment, has announced the introduction of their Strong Interest Inventory┬« certification programme to the Indian market.

For over 85 years the Strong Interest Inventory® instrument has provided time-tested, research validated insights to help individuals in their search for a rich fulfilling career. Using the highly reliable Strong instrument, people are able to chart fulfilling career paths by reflecting how their interests, preferences, and personal styles relate to actual careers. With its scales constantly updated to reflect contemporary realities, the Strong has maintained its position as one of the world's most respected and widely used career planning tools.

Anahat's 1-day Strong Interest Inventory® Certification Programme is designed for career counsellors, HR consultants and outplacement specialists, who are already familiar with basic career guidance and general HR procedures. The programme covers methods to successfully administer and interpret Strong reports for career exploration. Participants learn how to apply the results of the Strong Interest Inventory® to career development, career change and job satisfaction issues; and practice feedback sessions to hone their technique. On completion of the programme, participants gain a certificate of qualification to purchase and use the Strong instrument and reports.

Dr.Martin Boult, Director of Professional Services & International Training at CPP Asia, said, "Career professionals in India are acutely aware of the importance and benefits of helping people plan and manage their careers in a dynamic country. Indeed many participants shared a key reason for undertaking the certification was to meet the demand and expectations of their clients who are seeking reliable and objective information to inform their career decisions. The participants also reported the benefits of utilising the Strong Interest Inventory with school students, college students, adults seeking to reinvigorate their careers and others planning career transition."

Speaking on the response to the Strong Interest Inventory┬« certification programmes so far, Ms. Nishtha Pareek from Anahat said, ÔÇťThis is the perfect time to launch the Strong Interest Inventory┬« in India as our country is witnessing an unprecedented increase in the array of career options available in the market. Career planning should involve learning enough about oneself and the occupations being considered, in order to eliminate guesswork and make informed decisions. Strong Interest Inventory┬« helps individuals do that by connecting individual career interests to occupations. There has been a lot of interest in the Strong Interest Inventory┬« assessment. The large number of participants in the very first Strong Interest Inventory ┬« certification programmes in Mumbai and Bangalore are is proof of that."

More certification programmes are planned for this year in Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai. If you're interested in learning more about the Strong Interest Inventory® or signing up for Anahat's upcoming certification programmes, please email or call (91) 44 4201 9547.
