17th Edition examination arrangements
The course is assessed by a computer based on-line multiple-choice test of 2 hours duration. A short familiarisation test and briefing ensures you are familiar with the test requirements before you start. The exam is externally set and automatically marked by City & Guilds with immediate notification of the provisional result through the SecureAssess system. Candidates who pass the exam normally get the certificate within two to three weeks.
Open Learning or Exam Only option
Get the qualifications by taking the least time off from your business or workplace.
Open Learning Option
Register with IPS that you want to do the exam and receive Open Learning training. We will arrange a convenient time for you to visit IPS and have a briefing on the course.
We tell you what you need to learn, what you need to practice, what competence tests we will do with you.
You arrange a return visit to IPS and then sit the on-line test. This takes about 2.5 hours and you receive your provisional results within 10 minutes.
Exam Only Option
If you are confident you can do the exam, are already experienced at using the 17th Edition and On-Site Guide and satisfy all the exam eligibility requirements you can book an on-line exam session through IPS. To comply with City and Guilds candidate entry requirements, one of our tutors will speak with you to ensure you have the potential to successfully gain the qualification.
