Course assessment and examination

Classroom-based version

It is a requirement of the CQI-IRCA Certified courses that delegates fully attend and successfully achieve the course learning objectives before a certificate of achievement can be awarded. Therefore, delegates attending this classroom-based training are required to take a one-hour examination. The examination is a multiple-choice paper and is closed book.

In addition, the tutors’ continual assessment of delegates ensures that weaknesses in any areas are identified during the course so that actions are taken to help the delegate achieve the learning objectives.

Online version

It is a requirement of the CQI-IRCA Certified courses that delegates fully attend and successfully achieve the course learning objectives before a certificate of achievement can be awarded. Therefore, delegates attending the online version of this training are also required to take a one-hour examination. This is not an online examination. It will be held at a few locations in the UK approximately 2 weeks after the course completion (please note that during the lockdown and travel restrictions period, examinations are not held until such time that the restrictions are lifted).

In addition, our online technology allows the tutors’ continual assessment of delegates to ensure that weaknesses in any areas are identified during the course so that actions are taken to help the delegate achieve the learning objectives.

Course Certificate

A “Certificate of Achievement” of the course is awarded to those delegates who successfully complete the course assessment.
