There are currently three levels of license:

  1. Foundation; includes practical elements and a 26 question multiple choice exam paper (pass mark 19).
  2. Intermediate: includes practical elements and a 46 question multiple choice exam paper (pass mark 35).
  3. Full: A single theoretical knowledge based exam – no practical assessment – 67 questions (pass mark 47).

Each license must be gained in order of progression, the first two levels have practical elements, which are assessed on site by the training team. The ‘Full’ license is based on a candidate’s theoretical knowledge of the relevant subject matter.
