How about IOSH Working Safely?
Working Safely final exam consists of a multiple choice exam and a hazard spotting exercise. The hazard spotting exercise asks some questions based on a picture of a hazard.
Is there a guaranteed pass?
IOSH rules state that a delegate can have two attempts at a final exam. After that they would need to resit the whole course.
So whilst we can not guarantee a pass, First4Safety will foot the bill for you to retake the whole course if necessary, and as many times as you need.
A retake of the whole course is very rare, and if it happens we talk the delegate to understand the areas where they need to spend more time.
We all learn differently, and we will do everything possible to ensure you complete the course successfully.
