Assessment Each time you complete a lesson you will receive an automated email. You can click on the response button in your email to return to the quiz and see your results. Some responses are marked automatically but in the case of extended responses we will manually score you when we have received and read your answers. If that happens then you will receive another email with updated results. Please check below each question to see if we have left a comment. We may also ask you to re-answer a question or section if we are not satisfied your answers are correct. Please respond promptly if this is the case.
In most instances we will process your application for authorisation or renewal even if responses are not quite right but in some rare cases we may need to delay your authorisation until we are satisfied you have understood the course content.
