Digital Assessment Solution


Since launching online assessments in December 2016, we have listened to feedback from our membership. During this time, we have continued to develop and make significant enhancements. These include expanding the range of devices that candidates can use to sit their IWCF online assessment, ensuring a positive customer experience.

The digital assessment solution will be introduced to all accredited training centres from 1st October 2018.

The digital assessment solution will include two options for assessment delivery;

  • Online assessments using an internet connection
  • Offline assessments using an intermittent internet connection. (As the assessment is offline, this option only requires an internet connection for initiating the schedule and uploading the results after the assessment).

The two options will be available on PCs, laptops, iPad and Android tablet devices. All languages and units of measurement will be available for the online and offline assessments.

Benefits for the digital assessment solution include:

  • Reduction in price of at least 15% for candidate assessment fees compared to paper assessments
  • Reduction in shipping costs, reducing the carbon footprint
  • Increased flexibility for schedule updates
  • Instant re-sits available for every candidate who is eligible
  • Instant and 100% accurate results with automated Grading Analysis Sheets
  • No requirement for check marking of assessments, resulting in faster eCerts
  • Significant improvement in reporting capabilities to assist centres, assessors and instructors
  • Improved quality and delivery of assessments
  • Increased security of assessment delivery
  • Instant candidate feedback collated and stored within the system.

An information guide is available for all accredited centres to explain the equipment and requirements in more detail. Please contact us to request a copy of this.

Our team of account coordinators are available to discuss the digital assessment solution with you if you have any questions.
