During the Covid-19 lockdown period, it is not possible to run the AssistKD public examination sessions. These examination sessions will be restarted once restrictions have been lifted.

Customers who attend an AssistKD Learning From Home course are able to take online examinations in the following subjects:

  • Foundation: Business Analysis, Business Change, Systems Development, Project Management
  • Practitioner: Business Analysis Practice, Requirements Engineering, Modelling Business Processes
  • BA Professional: Agile Business Analysis, Advanced Requirements Engineering, Benefits Planning & Realisation, Stakeholder Engagement, Team Leadership, Data Analysis, Business Finance

AssistKD is an accredited BCS Professional Certifications (ISEB) examination provider. Most courses also include an exam, which is taken at the end of the course.

AssistKD runs public examination sessions at fortnightly intervals at its central London offices. It is possible to book these as stand-alone exams via the online exam schedule.

We are also the creators of the examinations that lead to the BCS Advanced Diploma. These exams can be taken at the end of AssistKD courses and are invigilated by BCS.
