ISWP Tests

ISWP offers tests on wheelchair service proficiency which complement the World Health Organization (WHO) Wheelchair Service Training Packages. There is no cost for individuals to take the test, and those who pass receive a certificate of competency. ISWP’s Wheelchair Service Provision Basic test is currently available. The Intermediate Test and Training of Trainers Assessment will be released in late 2016. Learn more about each test below.

 

ISWP's Basic test is appropriate for those with introductory knowledge in wheelchair service provision. ISWP issues a certificate of competency for those who pass the test.

ISWP's Intermediate test has two components: 1) An online knowledge test; and 2) a skills assessment using a case study approach. Those interested in taking the Intermediate test should have completed WSTP-I or have significant experience with more complex wheelchair and seating provision, including postural support devices and pediatric wheelchair prescription. ISWP issues a certificate of competency for those who pass the test.
