  • If assessments are not passed on the first attempt the individual must wait 15 calendar days before retesting.

  • If the individual does not pass a second time, he/she must wait another 15 calendar days before testing again.

  • If he/she does not pass a third time, the individual must wait 60 calendar days before taking the assessment again
