This is a report/essay format where those who have successfully completed Stages 1 and 2 are required to submit answers online. Four questions are shown in the delegates’ online training pages following acknowledgement of successful completion of Stage 2.  


Course delegates can download the questions (in Word format) and provide their answers in the same file.  The answers should be no more than 1,500 words per question (excluding the questions). Expected time spent in answering each question is 2 hours.


Word files containing the completed answers are then uploaded and submitted online in either Word or pdf format by clicking the button "Submit My Answer". Once delegates have submitted their answers, no subsequent amendments or addenda can be made.


BK SURCO reserves the right to take measures to check that no plagiarism has taken place in the answers submitted by delegates. Any instances of plagiarism of other delegate's answers will result in a failure of Stage 3 of the course.


Full marks for the 4 questions in Stage 3 are 80 marks (20 per question) and delegates should submit their answers within 30 days after the last day of classroom training.


The total marks scored in Stage 3 will be combined with that scored in Stage 2 and hence the full marks for this stage are 100 marks.  Pass mark is 60%.


Stage 2/3 assessment results will be notified to candidates by email within 60 days of the last day of classroom training or, where an extension of the time for submission of the Stage 3 assessment has been given, then within 30 days of receipt by BK SURCO of the submission.


For any queries related to the course, delegates may contact


For successful course delegates, certificates will be issued by BK SURCO, posted out within 30 days of the Stage 2/3 notification and will be valid for 5 years from the date of issue.


All delegates who receive the certificates are eligible for inclusion in the CICES List of Certified NEC Professionals.  Delegates may apply for this by following the instructions in the covering letter sent to them with the Certificate.
