Assessment

Once you have completed the six topics, you will be allowed to take the assessment. The course generates an assessment from question banks so that the questions change each time a candidate takes the assessment. This makes the training suitable for initial and refresher training.

There is no limit on the number of attempts at the assessment. In addition, the course gives useful feedback so candidates can learn from incorrect responses.
