The modules must be completed in order. The course can be exited at any point. The system saves progress so returning candidates can continue where they left off. If attempted in one sitting then at least 6 hours should be allocated to fully work through all the interactive exercises and to read and absorb the information. Learners who have completed other health and safety training will probably find they can work through at a much faster pace - typically less than 3 hours.
Further reading links are provided throughout the course. The assessment only covers the main course, the links are for interest only.
The assessment cannot be attempted until all the course modules have been worked through. The assessment must be done within 3 months of starting the course, BUT you can always contact us and we will re-enrol you for FREE - you must do the whole course again before attempting the assessment.
The assessment questions are randomly taken from a large question bank provided by IOSH. If the assessment is re-sat, different questions will be asked. The assessment must be completed in one sitting and cannot be re-visited or re-started. IOSH also states that the assessment should be treated as a closed book exam.
There are two parts to the assessment:
There is a time limit of 30 minutes for the assessment.
To attain the IOSH Working Safely Certificate an overall passmark of 30 out of 49 is required with a minimum score requirement for the individual modules of 20 out of 33 for the knowledge and comprehension assessment and 10 out of 16 for the application of learning. If you fail the assessment, then contact us and we will re-set the course Free of Charge so that you can try again. We will keep doing this until you pass.
