*Candidates not completing assessment within 12 months of assessment start may be subject to a £100+VAT assessment continuation fee.
What does the assessment consist of?
Firstly, you will have to do an online knowledge assessment, made up of 40 multiple choice questions. Once you pass, you will be able to download your Knowledge Certificate upon completion.
Then you will have an onsite observation of your work carried out by an assessor, including a discussion with them, followed by a final telephone discussion with the assessor.
If you pass the assessment, you will receive a knowledge assessment certificate and a skills card to prove to customers that you are meeting Building Regulations and industry best practice.
