Test-only for Renewal

The CCNSG Test-only for Renewal is an alternative option to the CCNSG Renewal Course with no classroom workshop elements.

The test comprises 60 multiple-choice questions with a required pass mark of 48 (80%).

No training or assistance will be given at the test so candidates must ensure they have revised their health and safety knowledge ahead of the session.  You are allowed two attempts at the renewal test before having to attend the one-day renewal course.
