Who We Are

The Free Test Company since 2009 has been helping thousands of construction workers through the sometimes-complicated process of obtaining revision materials, access to test centres, card applications and further related construction qualifications.

The Free Test Company is an independent third party from CITB CSCS and Pearsons Vue and are not to be assumed otherwise. We are not Construction Support Line either!

We are here to put all your eggs into one basket and charge a small admin fee above the charges made by going direct. This charge is probably less than making multiple phone calls and arranging postage of revision materials etc and we think it only fair that you know in advance before booking with us.

One phone call to us, acting as your agent will get you booked into your chosen test, revision material arranged and posted, and if required further training courses such as the GQA Level 1 Award in Construction Health and Safety.

We look forward to helping you into a constructive construction career.

Policy of Admission

It is your responsibility to ensure that you arrive at the course centre at least 15 minutes before the course start time. No responsibility by us or any other party will be accepted if you arrive late or fail to arrive due to failure of transport, adverse weather conditions or any other circumstance. Your full paid fees will not be refundable if you do not arrive at the location of your course or test for your scheduled start time which should be 15 minutes prior. Special refund/rescheduling conditions exist if a proven medical emergency is responsible for your delay.

Conduct of Candidates

The candidate should not attend a test or course location with anybody unauthorised and with written prior permission. Personal items should be kept to a minimum as storage of any items is unsecure.

Any items you carry into the course or test centre such as keys, phones, bags, etc  must be stored in a personal locker provided at the Centre.

Normal exam policies apply during courses and exams, some location and those in particular at Pearson Vue centres have CCTV and all Tests are recorded for security and detection or investigation of fraud purposes. CCTV footage is retained securely by the test provider depending on the test type for a period of up to two years.

Any misconduct by the candidate during the visit to the centre will result in the candidate being removed from the course and exam process, the candidate's attendance being void and the candidate's fee being forfeited.

The exam invigilators will explain how the candidate can attract their attention if the candidate should experience any technical difficulties during the examination process.
