Additional Info

The prices provided here should be used as guidance.

*If candidates fail to achieve the required level of competency in either the practical or theory assessment, it may be necessary for them to re-sit the sections which they have failed. If this situation arises an additional cost may be incurred.

Although training is available, it is not a pre-requisite of assessment.

Generally, individuals usually assess on all of the appliances listed as they all go hand in hand however, if you have specific requirements, please contact us so that we can see if there is a package which we can put together for you.
