Below are the most frequently asked questions in respect of iTEC qualifications for the academic year 2020/2021.

The COVID-19 qualifications are now pre-requisites to all iTEC qualifications which have a hands-on skills element. As such, they should be completed prior to beginning any practical work within the main qualification to ensure that learners are aware of all of the health, safety and hygiene requirements in relation to COVID-19.
Yes, the Covid 19 qualification can be completed online.
All of the unit documentation can be found here. The supporting materials which align to the unit specification can be used to deliver the qualification remotely. The multiple-choice theory paper is available online.
