It says I can do the test online, how does that work?

We conduct a supervised test over a Skype video call. You will need to provide your Skype name in advance so that we can invite you to connect before your testing time and show your proof of identification over the webcam to the test supervisor before the test commences. We will then send you the link to the testing site and talk you through the online test process. You will have a five-minute practice round before your five-minute assessment for the certificate.
