Students attending are expected to have completed their own prior studies and should treat the Level III training as final examination preparation as well as guidance on procedure writing.

Learning Objectives

  1. The objective of the Level III Workshop is to optimise preparation of the participant for employer based or PCN examinations at Level III by identification of weaknesses.
  2. Although we may recommend the number of days according to the method, our aim is to meet the requirements of the individual participant.
  3. The Level III Workshop is for Level II inspectors who meet the experience requirements to take Level III examinations.
  4. It is stressed that this is a tailor made course and should additional training be required prior to Level III examinations, it is recommended that the participant attend all or part of the Level II courses as well as their own distant learning.
