You will need to bring: Writing materials to take your own course note on the day. Please submit a clear, passport-style photo to fiona.green@ccn.ac.uk in advance of your course for your ID card registration. Failure to do this will incur a charge if additional certificates or ID cards need to be issued.

Computer Based On-line Test

Competency is assessed using an on-line computer-based test, on the day of your course. If, at the end of course, you would like additional revision/preparation time for your assessment please inform your tutor/assessor and we will arrange your assessment for another time suitable to you.

Please ensure that you are familiar with using a computer and a mouse, and are comfortable with undertaking multiple choice type tests. Candidates for whom English is not their first language may bring a bilingual dictionary to assessment. The dictionary must be clean with no notes. If you have any queries about the computer based test or to discuss whether access arrangements would be required, please contact the NPTC on 01603 731250.

NPTC - Disabilities and Access Arrangements

Please inform us immediately, if you have not already done so, of any disabilities that may disadvantage you in successful completion of your assessment; for example, if you have dyslexia or English is not your first language, or any mild disability which may require you to have some assistance. Under guidance from C&G we are able to make access arrangements for some learners to demonstrate their competence under assessment, without changing the demands of that assessment. Examples of access arrangements include: readers, scribes, extra time, or modified assessment material. However, as Certificates of Competence are vocational qualifications, candidates must achieve all the required units to gain a full qualification, and the awarding body will not make adjustments to the required competence standards. As an example, pesticide product labels detail essential information, and it is of paramount importance that a candidate is able to read and interpret this information to comply with legislative and operational requirements. If the candidate is unable to read and/or interpret a product label without assistance then they will not be deemed competent to practice, as if such a person were working without supervision in the workplace, there is the potential for serious incident to occur. If you would like to discuss this further or make access arrangements for your assessment, then please contact the NPTC directly on 01603 731250.
