CIWM (WAMITAB) Continuing Competence Tests

As required by the CIWM (WAMITAB) Operator Competence Scheme, Technically Competent Managers (TCM) must take the Continuing Competence Test (CCT) every two years; demonstrating the TCM’s knowledge and skills have kept pace with developments in the waste management industry.

The CCT is provided through Pearson Vue test centres on behalf of CIWM (WAMITAB). The computer-based test is comprised of multiple-choice questions that cover legislation, environmental protection and health and safety – also known as the Generic Knowledge Test (GKT).

The CCT will also include questions on your specific activity. For example, TCMs who manage End of Life Vehicles (ELV) operations should take the ELV Activity-Specific Test (AST). CIWM (WAMITAB) provide a list of the different ASTs available. Should TCMs require further assistance, then contact us or call 01480 462 232 and Wiser Training can help. Also, TCMs can test their CCT knowlegde by taking Wiser’s Continuing Competence Mock Test.
