This is an assessment where technicians must pass a practical assessment and two under-pinning knowledge theory tests.
First the technician must pass the under pining knowledge test which consists of 50 questions. This will be split up of 35 questions that will be of technical content and 15 questions that will be of legislative content. Time to complete this test is 1 hour.
Once the technician has passed the under pinning knowledge test they then have 12 months in which to successfully complete the practical assessment.
The practical assessment in the inspection technician licence is

The practical assessment takes between 1.5 - 2 hours
This assessment is aimed at technicians who have at least 3 years industrial experience or a level 3 S/VNQ (or equivalent qualification) plus at least one years experience in a relevant industrial environment.
