Example of a practical knowledge examination

Practical knowledge examination Practical examination of the knowledge of a candidate for the NVQ Security Guard.

In the video, we see how the members of the commission invite the candidate to a practical examination, where they examine the remaining knowledge and experience required to obtain the qualification as a security guard directly with a short practical assignment. In the practical task, the candidate is also asked questions related to the task itself.

When obtaining an NVQ certificate, the first step is always to attempt to recognise the NVQ on the basis of the candidate’s evidence of his or her skills in his or her portfolio. However, if the committee finds that the candidate does not meet the qualification standard on the basis of the evidence in the portfolio, it shall also refer the candidate to a direct examination of those skills that the candidate did not demonstrate with the supporting documents. If there is a direct examination, this is usually a practical examination with a spoken defence. The written examination mentioned in the film is very rare when obtaining the an NVQ certificate.
