- Written/Oral questioning: Learners are required to answer a series of questions ensuring their understanding of the theory content is sufficient to meet the required standard. Oral questioning can be used to extract further information for these questions during the practical assessments, with the tutor documenting the responses, or when needing to supplement learners’ written responses, according to individual learners’ needs.
- Accident Report Form: Learners are required to show evidence that they are able to complete an accident report form.
This qualification lasts for a period of 3 years, at which point candidates will need to re-sit the course, however the recommendation is that learners refresh their knowledge annually with a minimum of a half-day CPD course.
