What to Expect
The ConstructSafe assessments are not training courses; they are online assessments administered by an approved assessment provider. The assessments are delivered through touch screen tablets provided by Workplace Training, supported by an audio feed to assist candidates with reduced literacy skills or who have English as a second language.

ConstructSafe Assessment Fees
Workplace Training will provide a quotation of assessment fees upon request. Written quotes provided by Workplace Training are valid for 7 business days.
Should candidates not successfully pass the assessment on their first attempt, they are eligible to immediately resit the assessment for an additional fee. The fee for a second attempt resit is $40+GST (the same applies for every even numbered attempt).
All resits must be completed within 30 days of an unsuccessful assessment. Where the candidate does not resit the assessment within 30 days, the candidate in accordance with ConstructSafe requirements will be required to pay the full cost of the assessment again as identified above (i.e cost equivalent to that of 1st attempt).
