This article looks at an integral part of being an Artisan who operates in one of the trades. We will briefly explain what Trade Test means and what they consist of.

Trade Test 101

Let’s start off with the basics and lay the foundation, shall we?

What is a Trade Test? This is a final integrated summative assessment for an artisan qualification for a particular listed trade. There are accredited centers and registered bodies that facilitate, conduct, and moderate these tests.

At Qualitas Training, we are an accredited Training and Trade Test Center, and we also prioritize the preparation and readiness that our learners should have for these tests so that they are able to have and understand the importance of having an end goal. The burning question we instill in your mind is: “What do I want to achieve at the end of this learning program?” This is where our preparation comes in through the ARPL Assessment which will give the learner and the assessor an idea of just how ready the candidate is for the trade test as it gives a clear indication of just how much the learner knows and what they need to still learn.

There is the Trade Test, and then there is the Qualitas Training Trade Test. We regard it as the last assessment that is one step away from you being a qualified Artisan. We allow up to 4 attempts at this assessment, but we are elated to express that we seldom see a third attempt on them here.

For more on Trade Tests, our website has the full scope. What you should have confidence in, is that Qualitas Training Trade Tests will always produce South Africa’s finest artisans, thoroughly and with top-tier quality.
