My main concern here is how it will affect those who are currently level 1 certified.
Pretty sure that's backawards. I've hosted a Level 2 cert and the pass rate was sometihng like 40%. The trainers said that was about typical.

I'm pretty sure this should be OK to post publicly. The information is available publicly, although its location is a little obscure.

Re: New Level 1 Cert. Testing?

Wow really nice to see this stuff!!!

And if you are confident enough we will now have the opportunity of only taking the LVL2 exam instead of the whole 2 days + 1 day test ( If i understood correctly ). THAT is really nice for trainers with quite some knowledge/experience under their belt

As far as 85% of the people actually passing the test, I don't think we should be bothered with this so much, I mean I don't have the exact data but as I think someone said previously in this thread, much of the population ( I'd say close if not higher than 85%) do pass their driving license no?

Only good steps in the right direction in my opinion,

Whatever they come up with as a passing grade is fine, my issue was why even bother with a test if 85% pass it. The system won't be perfect, but it seems to be headed in the right direction.
85% passing a written test given right after a fairly intensive cert seems reasonable to me. The material was taught a couple different ways, the participants have an opportunity to study beforehand. No worse than every other adult learning course I've ever taken. And they've tested which should A) silence the "there's no test critics" and B) give Level I s 3rd party cert which would silence the "How is a one weekend cert enough" crowd.


EDIT: Ryan I did misunderstand your post. Thank you for clarifying what was already clear except for me. The idea I posted stands though. So what 85% pass, why shouldn't it be that way.
