Knowledge tests

Knowledge tests are a one-off assessment covering the whole trade discipline. These are taken online or at a nearby test centre. Read here which option is best for you. Successful completion is valid for six months, during which it must be superseded by a completed technical test(s) to assure base technical competence.

Technical tests

Technical tests are taken at an ECITB test centre which are spread out across the UK. During 2022 ECITB will also enable an additional, alternative delivery model for employers whereby tests can be conducted through digital means at site, whilst carrying out work activity. Each test is specific to a trade discipline activity and includes questions relevant to the specific activity, followed by the practical assessment(s). Once successfully completed, Connected Competence is valid for 3–4 years, depending on the specialist trade.

Connected Competence is welcoming the sponsored testing of transient / short-term workers. If you need assistance with booking a test please contact regina.rodriguez@ecitb.org.uk or call 07585 307620.

If you are a provider of technical training / testing and are interested in delivering Connected Competence tests please contact connected@ecitb.org.uk
