Exam Invigilators Assessment

Primary tabs

Course Description: 

Watch the 5 online module videos and read the Training Now’s invigilation process document. You may find it helpful to have a copy of the “Regulations for Conduct of External Assessments” handbook to refer to. Once you have familiarised yourself with the conduct of invigilation of assessments, you will be required to complete a multiple choice assessment. You will need to achieve 90% on this assessment prior to being authorised to conduct invigilations on behalf of Training Now.

Once you have achieved this course, please contact the Training Now office on (01305) 825 473. We will then create you a surpass account to allow you to carry out invigilation of external assessments and be presented with an invigilation pack.
