Kaplan Professional vocational exams

As you may be aware, Kaplan Professional has cancelled exams at our offices around the country until further notice due to COVID-19. Government directives have also meant many public venues have been required to close.

To offer you as much flexibility as possible, Kaplan Professional is pleased to advise you either sit your exams:

  1. Face-to-face with a supervisor at your place of work
  2. Supervised online via Zoom

Important: Please be advised this process will only be in place until government restrictions on public venues have been lifted.

With COVID-19 restrictions slowly easing in some states, you now have the flexibility to sit your vocational exams face-to-face and supervised in your workplace.

 

Requirements to book a supervised face-to-face exam
It’s important to note you’ll be required to organise an Independent Supervisor under the same conditions prescribed in your Student Handbook. Therefore, both you and your Independent Supervisor must meet the requirements before making your exam booking for face-to-face supervision.

1. The nominated Independent Supervisor must:

    • Not be related to you or a personal friend 
    • Not reside at the same address as you 
    • Not be a student currently enrolled in the same subject 
    • Be available to supervise your exam on the set date at the specified time 
    • Not leave you unsupervised during the exam

2. The exam venue must:

  • Be a quiet room at your workplace/office

 

Book a vocational exam face-to-face
There are two ways you can book your supervised face-to-face exam:

  1. Log into your Student Portal and book your exam in the ‘My Enrolments’ tab, then select ‘View Subjects/Book Exam’ under the relevant subject.
  2. If you’d like us to book your exam for you, email the below details to enrolments@kaplan.edu.au:
    • Venue name
    • Venue location
    • Date and time
    • Supervisor name
    • Supervisor email            
    • Supervisor contact number
    • Supervisor company/organisation name            
    • Supervisor job title       
    • Supervisor address

Once your exam has been booked, you’ll receive an email confirming your exam booking with instructions. The email will also be sent to your nominated supervisor.

You’re still able to sit your vocational education exams online via Zoom with a supervisor. This means you can sit your exam at home or in a suitable location where you won’t be disturbed while completing your exam.
