Practical Session 2 Update - Australia

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be postponing the entry period for Session 2 Practical to 10-28 August. We will continue to review the Session 2 exams scheduled for October – December, however our ability to accept bookings will be conditional on restrictions that are currently in place being lifted. We will provide an update to customers as soon as we can. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.
