Which Activity Specific Test should I take?

An Activity-Specific Test (AST) (or ‘option’) comprises 8 questions on the specific competence which you need to maintain. This section is designed to give you an idea of which Activity Specific Test you will need to take during your continuing competence because you need to know before entering the Pearson VUE test centre.

Please note: the syllabus and questions will change on 1 June 2016

All you need to do is identify your overall site activity from the list below and click to find your Activity Specific Test (you can then access the syllabus and revision information for this activity):
