    Assessment

    •  The examination paper is compulsory and consists of 25 questions, selected by CITB, covering all aspects of the course.

    •  Identification must be checked prior to the examination
    •  During the examination, the trainer may invigilate a maximum of 5 delegates. If a course is run with more than 5 delegates, 2 examination sessions will be conducted
    •  Each delegate must show the invigilator that they are alone in the room and must be visible via the video at all times
    •  The examination pass mark is 80% (24 out of 30).
    •  The paper consists of 22 multiple choice questions and three short written questions. There are four safety critical questions in each exam paper. The delegate must answer all four of these questions correctly to pass the exam.
    •  The multiple-choice questions are worth 1 point each, whereas written questions can score between 1-3 marks.
    •  We suggest you share this information with the delegates prior to attending the course

    Assessment Re-sits

    There is an option for an examination to be re-taken if the delegate fails on the first attempt. When this is taken will be at the discretion of the training and Citrus Training.

    •  Where a delegate has achieved between 70%–77% (21, 22 or 23 out of 30) in the examination or has achieved the 80% pass rate but failed the safety critical questions, the delegate may re-sit the examination. This can either be on the same day or by resitting the exam by attending another course on the final day within a 90-day period (the delegate is not obliged to re-do the day’s course)

    •   When a delegate scores less than 67% (20 correct answers out of 30) in the final examination, the delegate must attend the full SSSTS course again before they can re-sit the examination.
