About the course

Overview of the AMPS

The AMPS is an innovative observational assessment that is used to measure the quality of a person’s activities of daily living (ADL). The quality of the person’s ADL performance is assessed by rating the effort, efficiency, safety and independence of 16 ADL motor and 20 ADL process skill items, while the person is doing chosen, familiar and life-relevant ADL tasks. There are more than 120 standardised ADL tasks. For additional information regarding the AMPS go to:


Course Description

AMPS training comprises 5-day AMPS course plus follow up testing of 10 people to achieve rater reliability as an AMPS rater (rater calibration). Participants obtain valuable, hands-on information regarding occupation-based assessment and intervention, developing new skills and insights during the course that enhance confidence in using occupation when providing occupational therapy services.

Full attendance for all five days is required. Additionally, following the course, participants need to achieve rater reliability and calibration which involves follow up testing of 10 people and submitting the scores to the Centre for Innovative OT Solutions (CIOTS) for analysis. It should be noted that if rater reliability is not achieved another 10 cases may then be submitted. If a participant is still not successful, they will need to take the course again. More than 95% of participants who submit calibration data achieve rater reliability. An AMPS certificate is provided following successful completion.


Course Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of the course, including rater calibration, participants will be able to:

  1. Have a theoretical foundation for using the AMPS to promote client-centered and occupation-based practice.
  2. Administer, score, and interpret the AMPS in a reliable manner.
  3. Use the AMPS methodology to assess the quality of a person's ADL performance
  4. Use the AMPS to plan and guide occupational therapy intervention (direct and consultative)
