A registration fee of £35.00 will be collected by SPADAC, which will ensure the registration for life of the apprentice or trade person, identifying a period of time for a Skills Test and the holding of qualification information.

Working in partnership with CITB, SPADAC will inform CITB to book Apprentices onto a Skills Test only if the Apprentice on the booking-on-form is listed on the SPADAC registration list. 
CITB will inform the employer of the date, time and location of the test. It is the employer’s responsibility to inform the Apprentice of these details and accept the test.

SPADAC, working in partnership with SQA Awarding Body, will result the Skills Test to the Awarding Body when informed by CITB of the result and include time served criteria prior to resulting.

SPADAC, working in partnership with CITB, will ensure that Apprentices who fail the Skills Test are re-allocated a test and employers and apprentices are informed.
