Assessment Period

Expected duration for completion is 12 months. Students are encouraged to complete their assessments within twelve weeks of completion of any theory content, however they have up to twelve months to submit the online assessments. 

The duration time is calculated from when a student begins their course content. Within the accessIQ platform, students will be provided an initial six months to complete and submit all required self-directed and online assessment activities. 

Friendly email reminders will be sent to students to ensure an assessment is completed on time. At the completion of the 6-month period, students can request up to a maximum of two extensions, each extension being for a period of 90 days. 

If the entire 12-month period expires and a final assessment has not been submitted, The Benchmarque Group reserves the right to deem the assessment Not Competent and remove the student from the program.
