The WIA trial theory assessments available online since May this year requires a simple registration process, and the feedback has been that they exceeded the expectations of those who have used the exams. Organised by WIA Trainer Fred Swainston VK4FE/VK3DAC and following feedback and comments, the trial exams these will be converted to tutorials and left online.

The trial theory papers at the Foundation, Standard and Advance level are similar to those used in the actual multi-choice exams. These were a ‘proof-of-concept’ exercise and a move closer by the WIA towards enabling WIA Nominated Assessors to use online exams for candidates needing a remote assessment.

Fred VK4FE / VK3DAC says a test of their use in remote assessments has been greatly helped by the feedback received. Quite a few requests were made to provide some additional material and answers to these trial examinations. Two Standard licence trial papers are being converted to tutorials where the answers are provided. Then will come the Regulations trial papers.

To access the trials you need the latest version of the flash player, and log on to the Silvertrain website Link clicking on the Amateur Radio tab.
