AS2708-2001 Typing Test FAQ’s

When can I sit my test?

The first available appointment time is 9am, and the last appointment time is 4.00pm, Monday to Friday. (Excludes Public Holidays).

It says I can do the test online, how does that work?

We conduct a supervised test over a Skype video call. You will need to provide your Skype name in advance so that we can invite you to connect before your testing time and show your proof of identification over the webcam to the test supervisor before the test commences. We will then send you the link to the testing site and talk you through the online test process. You will have a five minute practice round before your five minute assessment for the certificate.

How do I get my certificate if I am doing the test over Skype?

We will send a scanned copy of the signed certificate to your email address shortly after the test takes place.

How long will the test take?

Allow yourself approximately thirty minutes to run through the details of the test, ask any questions and conduct the practice and certified typing test.

What happens if I fail the test?

If you do not pass after two attempts you will be required to re-book online, after undertaking some further practice as this often helps to improve typing speed and accuracy.

Can I pay for the test on the day?

No, tests must be purchased in advance from our website.  Available payment methods include credit card or PayPal, a receipt will be provided.

How long is the certificate valid for?

The validity period is not specified in the Australian Standard.

What’s included on the certificate?

Each Certificate of Attainment includes your name, the date the test was taken, the results achieved in (words per minute and percent accuracy), and a signature of verification.
