Additional March 2021 Examination Series
Due to the uncertainty of Covid-19 going forward and the possibility of local/national lockdown occurring PIABC has been investigating a contingency plan which will allow learners every opportunity to complete their examinations/qualifications during these unprecedented times.
PIABC has therefore made the decision to hold an additional one-off examination series during the first week of March 2021 to mitigate for any local/national lock downs which may affect centres and their learners ability to sit examinations in November 2020.
See 2021 Calendar of Examination Dates for more details.
