ConstructSafe receives $60 for every Knowledge Assessment completed (with the exception of free Foundation Knowledge Assessment re-tests). $40 goes to CHASNZ and $20 goes to the contractor who operates the scheme for us.
Our Assessment Providers charge something on top of the $60 to cover their own costs etc. and pricing varies from provider to provider, so shop around (approximate range $90-$140).
Knowledge Assessments are challenging; they have been designed that way on purpose. Your people must be adequately prepared!
It is essential that you find a training programme that aligns with the assessment your people are taking.
Encourage your people to read through their training material prior to their assessment. Some employers run a specific session before the assessment to help with the preparation.
There must be no negative stigma associated with not being successful with the assessments. Each candidate receives a personal feedback report; ensure your people receive adequate coaching and learning before they repeat an assessment to maximise their chances of success.
