How does the IOSH eLearning course and examination work?
To obtain the certification candidates must enrol in the IOSH Managing safely eLearning course and complete all seven modules. Once seven modules are completed they should undertake the final assessment and complete a workplace practical assessment. From the date of purchase of the course, candidates would have 6 months for completion and submission of assessments. After this period access to the content is no longer available.
Before taking the final assessment, as well as completing all seven modules, candidates must also successfully undertake two mock assessments. The mock assessments will help you to prepare for the final assessment. The scores obtained will not count towards the score that you get in the final assessment.
The final assessment consists of 30 questions which should be completed in 45 minutes. The maximum possible score for this assessment is 60 marks. Candidates are required to reach a minimum of 36 marks to be successful. This equates to 60%. Candidates would be given two attempts to reach the required level. Should this not be achieved, candidates would be required to undertake the whole course again, before attempting final assessment.
Workplace Practical Assessment
Candidates will undertake a workplace practical assessment, once they have been successful in the final assessment. This practical assessment should be completed within ten working days of the candidate being notified of successful completion of the final assessment. This assessment can be completed electronically or by hand and sent to TWI via email. You will be provided with guidance on how to complete this assessment and how it is marked. Candidates require a minimum of 23 marks to successfully complete this assessment.
Once you have successfully completed both the course and the workplace practical assessment, you will receive your certificate from IOSH.
