The SCST written examinations are professional body qualifications in ECG interpretation.
Please note that as in most professional qualifications, different examinations apply to different categories or roles of staffing.
The SCST offer the following written examinations:
Each examination consists of Multiple Choice Questions only.
Exams can still be booked after the closing date until 24 hours prior to the exam commences, subject to availability.
First time test takers must create a Pearson VUE web account. There is a “Create account” option available on this page. Please note that account creation may require up to 24 hours. You will be notified by email when your account is activated.
Once you have a Pearson VUE web account you will be able to register for any exams for which you qualify. You will need to choose your exam, exam language, exam test centre, date of exam and time of exam. After you schedule your exam, Pearson VUE will send a confirmation email detailing your exam date, your exam time, the address and phone number of the test centre and directions to the test centre.
If you have any special needs that need to be met to enable you to sit the SCST examinations, e.g. additional time or physical adjustments to be made, please complete the steps below before the 1st February 2024. This should ensure there is no delay to booking your examination before the deadline of 12th February 2024.
Please DO NOT book your examination online if you have any additional requirements as they cannot be added. Once SCST approve your request, SCST will arrange for Pearson VUE to contact you and book the exam.
