Pre- Assessment RDAT allot batches to the Assessing Bodies on rotational basis depending on the presence of assessing body in that region sector wise and the assessing body in coordination with VTP and assessor should confirm and schedule the assessment. The Assessing Body confirm the date of assessment in consultation with VTP and communicate to the RDAT/State. The Assessing Body forms a panel of ACE qualified assessors of high repute and integrity SDIS sector wise and location wise. The assessment of the candidates is done by the Assessing Bodies in designated Testing Centre (TC). The Testing Centre where the assessment is carried out and Testing Centre can be VTP also. The Assessing Body select the TC based on the location, accessibility and the infrastructure facilities available for conducting the test. The Assessing Body provide details of selected TC along with skill areas in which assessment can be done at the TC, to the RDAT and respective States/UTs. The Assessing Bodies depute ACE qualified assessors for assessments whose details are furnished by Assessing Bodies to DGE&T in advance. Assessing Body has to communicate to the Testing Centre following: -Details of the candidates to appear for assessment in various MES courses. -Details of Assessors selected with their contact details. -Requirement of infrastructure, raw material etc. -Testing charges to be reimbursed to Testing Centre Preparation of assessment tools and prerequisites: The assessment tools contain components for testing the knowledge, application of knowledge and demonstration of skill. The knowledge test is objective paper based test or short structured questions based. The application of knowledge is verified based on questioning or seeking response for a case.
