Qualification Exams Resits

All of the new FD&A qualification modules (training courses) launched (2018) by the Fire Industry Association include online examinations.

If a delegate fails an exam at the end of a particular training course they will be offered one free exam resit (with the exception of the Health & Safety module*).

Exam resits will be held at locations across the UK and will consist of the online exam only (no further training or revision is provided). Delegates are expected to have gained further knowledge and understanding by studying the work book provided during the training courses and by reviewing the online training videos available on the FIA website.

The Foundation course videos can be found here>>

The ‘Foundation course’ exam is an hour long and will start 30 minutes after the advertised registration time (which may vary from location to location). The delegate will need to bring and present Photographic ID to be allowed to sit the exam.

Resit dates can be found in the online Training Calendar, search for Foundation Course and you will see the available courses. Retake exams are shown as ‘Foundation Course – RETAKE’

Please note that while it is listed alongside information on the full Foundation Course the Resits only include the exam and are not the full course as described.

When booking a delegate on the Resit/Retake you will require their Unique Learner Number (ULN) which can be found on joining instructions sent prior to their first course or on the results information sent to companies.

Please ensure that delegates have time for further study and are prepared fully for the exam.

If a delegate fails the exam a second time, and wishes to continue, they will need to book and retake the full course and exam at the advertised rates.

Once a delegate is booked in to take a resit/retake, cancellation terms apply. Cancellation made with less than 7 days to go until the exam date will forfeit the free exam offer and delegates will need to rebook the full training course at the advertise rates.

* The Health & Safety course exam is provided via the JIB and relates to the ECS card, therefore exam fees are set and the offer of a free resit does not apply. An ‘exam only’ option exists for the H&S module only and therefore any delegate that fails can book directly onto one of these exams.
