- When ready, book a suitable date and time to sit for the formative assessment(s) directly with the Academy of Learning Assessment Centre nearest to you. This would be the Assessment Centre you selected with when you completed your registration form. Should you want to write your assessment at a different Centre than selected you must mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not have an Academy of Learning Assessment Centre near you, contact our Insurance helpdesk on 011- 314 5108. The formative assessments will consist of a number of randomly generated multiple-choice questions. Your assessment will be marked by the computer and your result will be available immediately. There will be a report in your profile on the AOLSA ILMS that you can draw indicating your progress per unit standard.
Should you fail, you will be permitted to retake the assessment on two more occasions. This is a closed book assessment. You must obtain 65% for the formative assessment to qualify to write the summative assessment.
- Once you have qualified for the summative assessment, and when ready, book a suitable date and time to sit for the summative assessment(s) directly with the Academy of Learning Assessment Centre nearest to you. If you do not have an Academy of Learning Assessment Centre near you, contact our Insurance helpdesk on 011- 314 5108 and arrangements might be made to accommodate you to write the assessment.
(This assessment will consist of a written paper with long-answer style questions that will be randomly generated by the computer. You may select to answer this assessment on the computer or write it by hand. The Assessment by hand must be written in black ink and must be signed off by you and the Invigilator, even if you did it on the computer. This is a closed book assessment. No tippex/correction fluid is allowed on the assessment paper. You must obtain 60% to pass this assessment.)
- Failure to successfully complete the summative assessment (60% pass mark) within a year - you will be required to sit for a resubmission assessment with AOLSA at R300.00 per subject/programme (no registration fee).
- Your summative assessment paper will be sent to the Academy of Learning National Office where a qualified Assessor will mark / assess it. Your result will be subject to moderation and Inseta’s verification.
- The AOLSA ILMS will e-mail you with your result when available. Assessment / marking takes 3-6 weeks – so please check your AOLSA ILMS profile regularly for the results when uploaded. After the final results have been uploaded to the AOLSA ILMS, it takes 4-6 weeks for your CoP or ICiBS or Certificate of Achievement to be generated.
Registration Process: This service will only be available via the Academy of Learning Insurance Helpdesk in Midrand, Johannesburg.
- Learners who are registering for the first time for a qualification or course/program/cluster must complete the summative assessment within 12 months of registering for unit standards/RPL each course.
- In the case of Business Organisation candidates, the subject will be realigned to the Financial Literacy credits, thereby simplifying the structure. Those learners who completed the Business Organisation subject previously and it was uploaded onto the NLRD, would qualify for exemption of Financial Literacy subject.
Similarly, a learner who completed the CoP on the old basis and who now wishes to complete the full FETC qualification will have to be RPL’d (a form of assessment called Recognition of Prior Learning) against the new unit standards. RPL assessments are handled in the same way summative assessments are handled, with one exception – you will only get one chance at it - if you fail you will be required to enrol for the entire programme. The price for an RPL assessment is on the registration form.
Registration and assessments with the Academy of Learning is open throughout the year. There are no cut-off dates to register and write your assessments, providing you remain within your contractual timeframe of 12 months.
