The relevance of the paper is due to the modernization of Russian education, which led to the need to train a bachelor-psychologist, focused on the implementation of the professional-personal position formed in the process of learning, capable to self-understanding of innovative technologies, self-development and self-realization in professional activities (Verbitsky, 2016; Komarova, 2012).The globalization of education is associated with the rapid development of digital technologies and their introduction into the learning process. The focus of training a bachelor-psychologist capable of constructively solving problem situations, flexible overcoming difficulties in relations with others, to self-use of innovative technologies in accordance with the requirements of Federal State Educational Standard (FSES) (2016) has become a priority area of modern education (Leontiev, 1975).The goal of the paper is to argue the theoretical justification for forming of a bachelor-psychologist's position based on blended learning technology, which is based on the ideas of the theory and practice of organizing the educational process on the basis of blended learning technology (Bath & Bourke, 2014; Fahlvik, 2014; Higgins & Gomez, 2016); Higgins concepts of becoming a professional (Markova, 1990); ideas of subject-making personality (Brushleynsky, 2003; Vyunova, 2014). These trends are more aimed at revealing the problem of forming a professional-personal position of a bachelor-psychologist on the basis of blended learning technology, revealing the possibilities of "mixing" in the educational process the traditional "live" presentation of information and lectures online, groups of students and interaction of educational subjects in the forum or on the web - conference.The leading methods of the study are: theoretical (analysis of domestic and foreign psychological and educational literature; systematization of materials on the problem of research, modelling, prediction); empirical (poll, pedagogical experiment); diagnostic (expert assessment method, methods of mathematical statistics, data processing).Our research is based on the ideas of blended learning technology (Krasnova, 2014; Matukhin, 2015, etc.) as a system consisting of different interconnected parts, integrating forms of learning such as full-time in the classroom, in collaboration (educator and bachelor-psychologist) and self-learning activity (Nikitina, 2013). The materials presented in the paper allow to improve the quality of a bachelor-psychologist training, the blended learning technology developed allows to adapt to the changing conditions of modern reality.
