Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) course

Monday 20th February 2017 - Friday 24th February 2017

The Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) is an innovative observational assessment that is used to measure the quality of a person's activities of daily living (ADL). This is assessed by rating the effort, efficiency, safety, and independence of 16 ADL motor and 20 ADL process skill items, within the context of performing chosen, familiar, and life-relevant ADL tasks.

AMPS training comprises a five-day AMPS training course, and follow up testing of ten people to achieve rater reliability as an AMPS rater.

AMPS course participants will receive:

  • five-day AMPS training course
  • the current AMPS Manual
  • a personalised AMPS computer scoring program, provided to trained raters at completion of the course.



  • Please be aware that the course starts at 8.30am Monday to Thursday (20 - 23 February) and at 8.30am on Friday (24 February)
  • Finish times each day vary but tend to be between 5.00pm and 5.30pm
  • On Wednesday (22 February) the course can finish as late as 6.30pm.
