EXTERNAL ASSESSMENT

External Assessments

If you are unable to attend any of our schedules assessment days then you may be able to apply to sit your theory assessment or do your video assessment externally. Approval to do so is given by the Awarding Body and NOT by TRAINFITNESS. Therefore you must submit certain details before approval may be obtained. Please read the following guidelines carefully and make sure you complete all the necessary documentation before submission. NB: there is a £50 administration fee per application/assessment.

To be eligible for External Invigilation and/or Video Assessments you must - 

  • find traveling to one of our scheduled venues to be prohibitive.
  • be unable to be assessed at one of our scheduled assessment days due to religious reasons
  • live outside the United Kingdom

Please note that if you are in traveling distance to one of our venues and there are no religious reason why you may not be assessed at one of our scheduled assessments, your application will be declined.

External Invigilation Guidelines

The requirements for you to sit your theory assessment at a venue other than one of our scheduled venues are as follows - 

  • The venue must be a school, college or university i.e. a place where theory assessments are held regularly. Gyms and health clubs are not accepted.
  • The invigilator (person supervising your exam) must supervise theory exams as part of their regular job.
  • The invigilator must speak English.
  • The invigilator must not be a family member or relative. 

Should all the above requirements be met, please follow these steps -

Step 3 - Fill in the required fields and send it to your proposed External Invigilator for signing.

Step 4 - Return the signed External Invigilator Agreement to TRAINFITNESS to [email protected].

Once the signed agreement has been received, your application will be sent to the awarding body. Please allow up to 4 weeks for approval. Once approval has been granted your theory paper will be sent to the External Invigilator by recorded delivery. The paper can only be sent to the school, college or university where the invigilator works. The date you request to sit your assessment must not be changed. If you need to make any changes then you must notify us immediately as the Awarding Body will not accept any variations to the original application.
