This section provides guidance on the OCR Certificates of Professional Competence for Transport Managers. It should be read in conjunction with the CPC Syllabus, Student and Tutor Guide, the JCQ Instructions for conducting examinations and the OCR Instructions for invigilators.
Centres must verify the identity of candidates taking CPC examinations and must be satisfied the candidate taking the examination is the one whose name will be submitted to OCR.
Once you have made entries, for each candidate:
You must include the place of birth on the candidate identification form as otherwise the EC certificate, which CPC holders must have, cannot be issued.
Once you have made your entries, assessment materials (including labels to send to the examiner) will be sent to you approximately ten days before the examination.
You must check the question paper packets and examination material carefully as soon as you receive them.
Assessment material is highly confidential and it is the personal responsibility of the Head of Centre to see that security is maintained.
Centres must ensure candidates have or are provided with any equipment required to take the test, as well as for taking all reasonable steps to prevent candidates from having access to any unauthorised equipment or resources.
Candidates should only have access to items specified on the front page of the test paper, and must not have access to anything that could compromise the integrity of the test:
Candidates must be prepared and examinations must be conducted according to the JCQ Instructions for conducting examinations and the OCR Instructions for invigilators.
Invigilators must know what equipment is permitted in each examination and that candidates take into the examination room only that which is allowed.
Invigilators must visually check the candidate’s identity against the candidate identity form you have on file every time they sit an examination.
Candidate scripts must be posted to the approved examiner for that particular examination immediately after the session using the labels provided.
Responsibility for the candidates’ work remains with the centre until it is received by the examiner. Work should be sent by a traceable method.
