Learners can contact AEGIS for expert assistance and guidance at any time.

Assessment is by online Examination (60 multiple-choice questions.)

The Examination is not time-limited.

The percentage needed to pass the online Exam is 75%.

In the event that a learner fails to answer enough Exam questions correctly first time, they can re-sit the Exam’ until they do pass.
