The Compliance & Skills Academy Teams up with TestReach to Transform Exam Delivery for Construction Workers

The Compliance and Skills Academy (COSAC), a training institute which delivers courses in a range of construction specialities including the Safe2Site™ online course, have announced that they will be deploying TestReach, an online exam and assessment technology provider, to transform the way that construction courses and assessment will be delivered in the UK.

Now, new technology means that construction workers can not only study the Safe2Site course material online via their mobile or laptop, they can also sit their exam assessment of this course online as well. This is done by a technology called remote invigilation, where a supervisor connects to the candidate for the duration of the exam, and monitors them over the web using video, audio and remote screen share.
