We are open as normal Monday to Saturday. However, we will close from Wed 1st April 2020 until further notice.
If anything changes we will contact ALL candidates to confirm closure, allowing 72 hours for such candidates to make alternate arrangements for their exams.
We will also put a message on here to clarify the situation. Until further notice, we continue to deliver exams normally.
Exam taker numbers are very low because we are currently implementing a reduction of 50% testing capacity. For the few candidates who turn up we enforce the following sanitation procedures:
• If a candidate arrives who appears ill, we ask them to reschedule their exam at no extra rescheduling charge. . . .Wipe down all computer stations (keyboards, desk, mouse) after each candidate use.
• Space candidates as far apart from each other as possible – social distancing!
• We allow candidates who bring sanitizing supplies (wipes, hand sanitizer, etc) to make use of them prior to beginning their test and store them away with personal belongings while the exam is in progress.
• We provide extra tissues on all stations.
We continue to monitor and update the restrictions in effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Thank you for choosing SPARK and for your efforts to contain the continued spread of COVID-19 !!
