It is very unlikely that you II get relevant answer from the books/ internet sources. It is therefore recommended that you get yourself prepared well before the exams.

We have following measures in place to ensure that no case of malpractice goes unnoticed;

  • Using plagiarism software to ensure all candidates have unique answers with respect to other candidates
    from the same exam day
  • Examiners are well experienced who can detect if the submitted work has been done by 2 or more persons
  • Online Interviews will ensure that the candidates are asked relevant questions from the respective unit
    exams and syllabus to ensure the work submitted tallies with the knowledge and understanding of the
    candidate.

Yes. Your interview will be video recorded for quality assurance purpose.

You must be connected with a video call with the examiner during the whole part of your interview. Audio interview answers will not be accepted.

The process has been explained in the following PFD (Process Flow Diagram)

Step 1:

Candidates apply for registration (Directly or through Marketing Partners)

Step 2:

Your credentials are assessed against eligibility criteria.

Step 3:

You are advised if you are eligible or Not

Step 4:

In case you are eligible, you are asked to pay the fee and sign registration and related forms.

Step 5:

Books and related resource materials are issued to you accordingly

Step 6:

You carry out self study and seek support for online trainer (As required)

Step 7:

Once you are ready, you request an exam date from upcoming exam dates. You can appear in single or both unit exam as per your choice.

Step 8:

You sit for online exam and submit your answers online as per the given instructions.

Step 9:

your work is assessed by examiner/ quality assurance to ensure it is your own work without the help of any other individuals/entities etc.

Step10:

You II be given a suitable time for interview to ensure that work submitted is your own

Step11:

Upon satisfaction by the examiners and quality assurance, your result will be issued. In case you qualify both unit exams, your certificates will be processed with the awarding body. In case you fail one or both units, you can resit the respective units’ exams as per your convenience after the payment of resit fee.

Note: In case malpractice is identified at any stage        (Marking, interview), a formal letter of suspected malpractice will be sent to the candidate. Malpractice investigation will be carried out as per the policy in vogue.

Interviews will be called for only those candidates who score minimum passing marks in each unit and plagiarism or malpractice have not been suspected. If you score above minimum passing criteria for both unit exams together, you II be interviewed once. If you appear in single unit in one exam date and second unit in next exam date (1-2 months’ gap) then you II be interviewed twice separately for each unit. Those candidates whose score is lower than required passing score will not be interviewed and instead their result notification “Fail” will be issued.

Well in that case, Open book exams followed by an online interview is not a right choice for you. You must look for other options like NVQ diploma etc. For “International Diploma in Safety Engineering” open book exams, you must have English Speaking skills at IELTS 6 or higher (or equivalent in PTE Academics, Toefl etc.) in Speaking.

No. The interviews will be conducted to ensure there have been no malpractices. If examiners are satisfied, you II be issued with the result notification. If examiners believe that submitted work by the candidate does not seem to be his/her own, then notification of suspected malpractice will be issued.

We understand that interviews can be stressful. But you definitely not need to worry if the work submitted was your own without any help/ support from other person/s. We II ensure that these are as pleasant as they could be. Our purpose is to ensure that examination system is credible and we require the support of our candidates to let us reach to the conclusion.

You II not be given a result notification unless you appear for the interviews at given date and time. In case you miss the interview date and time, you II be charged 50$ (Or equivalent amount) for re-arranging your interview. In case you miss again, your result notification will be issued with a “VOID Result”

No. It will be practically impossible for us to let choose all the candidates with the date and time of their choice. However, we II give 5 working days’ advance notice to all candidates regarding their interview date and time.

No. You II not need to memorize anything for the interview. The interviewer will just check your concepts (80% from the specific unit exam content you submitted and 20% from overall understanding about syllabus). You can have your submitted work in printed format with you during the interview and examiner may ask you to explain some of the points you wrote as part of your answers. The examiner may ask the trailing questions to make his/her opinion about the work you submitted is either your own or not.
