Exam exemptions may also be available and must be obtained directly from PCN using form PSL/49, or CSWIP by contact TWI Certification Ltd.

To significantly reduce the training hour requirements, it is strongly recommended that BS EN ISO 9712 Level 2 certification in the method sought is achieved before undertaking Level 3 exams.

Please note:
All candidates attending a PCN examination (initial, retest or renewal) must provide photo ID (e.g Driving licence number, Passport number, PCN ID Card) on the day of sitting the examination. Failure to do so will result in the candidate being turned away.
