- A practical risk assessment project and management report carried out in the delegate’s workplace within 6 weeks of the course.
A score of 50% or more must be achieved for both written and practical assessments. An aggregate of 55% overall must be achieved to entitle the candidate to receive a Managing Safely certificate.
Delegates attending and successfully completing both the practical and written assessments will be awarded a certificate from IOSH.
Course delegates can re-sit assessments at the next possible opportunity if you have failed or been absent from the assessment with good reason. You are not automatically re-entered, so you must notify the course administrator of your intention to re-sit by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. If it is agreed, you will receive confirmation of the decision once your request has been considered.
There will be a fixed administration fee of £50 for each module to be re-attempted.
Any re-sits authorised will be in accordance the accrediting body scheme rules:
Delegates, who have attended all eight modules of the course will take the end-of-course assessments – (multi-format question paper and a risk assessment project). If they fail either of the assessments they can be given only one opportunity to re-sit either or both papers.
