Candidates must be registered on the qualification with an ECITB Approved Centre before undertaking any assessment. The types of assessment will vary depending on the qualification undertaken.
Competence qualifications require a candidate to be observed by an Approved Centre Assessor. This is normally done in a candidate’s ‘live workplace’ environment but a number of qualifications also allow for this in an approved simulated environment.
ECITB online knowledge tests are mandated in a number of qualifications and consist of a combination of multiple choice and short written questions and answers delivered in an invigilated environment.
Assessment may also consist of both timed assignments and/or practical tests delivered in an invigilated environment.
Technical discussions also take place between a candidate and an Assessor for competence qualifications. ECITB qualifications are designed to consider fair access to assessment and adhere to equal opportunities legislation. Please refer to our Reasonable Adjustments and Special Considerations Policy.
