Exam preparation

Before taking your online exam, you must: 

  1. Check your IT equipment and internet connection meet the minimum specification requirements to run the exam successfully

  2. Make sure you have read and understood the exam regulations including the photo identification requirements and rules relating to exam conditions and learner conduct

  3. Read the online exam guide for learners

  4. Speak to your training provider if you need extra support or time to take the exam or for religious reasons require a female CQI member of staff to review your proctoring recording. You must notify your training partner well in advance of taking your exam so they can submit a reasonable adjustment request to the CQI on your behalf.  Please refer to the CQI’s Reasonable Adjustments Policy for more information  

  5. We know exams can be stressful so we have developed some guidance to help you prepare for your exam
