Delegates will be assessed throughout the day and will need to successfully complete the end of course exam before a certificate of competence can be issued.
The course can be physically demanding during the practical exercises. Therefore the delegate or the employer will be required to sign a ‘declaration of fitness’ before being accepted onto the course.
