Prepare For Your Certification Exam
- In order to be well prepared for your exam day, we recommend:
- Taking at least one Tosa assessment test prior to your exam
The Tosa assessment test, like the certification exam, is an adaptive test composed of a mix of multiple-choice, interactive, and live in-the-application questions. It contains 25 questions and lasts 40 minutes. It does not need to be taken under proctored conditions. Results are delivered on the same 1-to-5 proficiency level scale and includes detailed skills reports to help determine student or candidate strengths and weaknesses before taking the certification exam.
- Utilizing the free practice tests available on our website
In addition to our Tosa assessment tests, we offer short practice tests for free. Simply navigate to and click on the “Free practice test” button on the top right of the page, then select which test subject you’d like to practice.
- Taking a Tosa-aligned course
We have partnered with several eLearning providers and publishers to provide online courses that align with the Tosa certification objectives. Tosa online courses typically range from one to eight hours, depending on the pre-existing skill or knowledge of the candidate, the expected outcome for the certification (score/level), and the provider.
