To be eligible to register for the final assessment you must have completed and submitted all assignments from the six core units. An online final assessment application must be completed prior to the closing date for entries, and all invoices must be settled in good time prior to the assessment.
Once you have read the information below and have met the above criteria you will be able to register online for the final assessment. Applications open three months prior and close approximately six weeks prior to the assessment date.
The final assessments are comprised of two open book scenario based short answer questions (SAQ) papers.
Open book means that you will have access to reference resources whilst completing the assessments. Questions will focus on a candidates higher-level learning, specifically their ability to analyse, evaluate and synthesize knowledge. Consequently, markers would expect to see evidence of knowledge, comprehension and critical thinking, rather than just recall.
To gain the award of CertVNECC, candidates must successfully attain passes in both papers.
