    Hi guys
    Got my prtc next week and just have a quick question regarding the functional skills test. If you already hold the fs qualification or equivalent do you still sit the test? As the document sent to me says you don't. But it doesn't give the alternative qualifications , the afco did says bring a copy of the qualies along just incase but also revise which is what im doing.

    Many thanks

    Hi Denber,

    What role are yoiu applying for out of curiosity?

    everyone has to achieve FS quals by the time they leave Halton, I believe if you already hold the correct levels if you take your certificates with you they take them into account. In terms of equivalent quals, I think you will still have to sit them, as you actually need to achieve the Functional Skills Quals (something to do with regulations, but I may be wrong). To be fair, anyone who holds GCSE's have more advanced quals, but they don't get taken into account. But again I may be wrong as i haven't been to PRTC yet.

    Hi mate, I'm going for AMM mechanical. Yeah the Cpl I spoke to didnt seem to sure either but said just take my qualies just incase. I have got a hnc and been through an apprenticeship already so don't know if that will help at all. Still going to prep for the test anyway.
    Cheers
