Assessment of Competence procedure for initial and renewal of the examiner certificate

To pass a an Assessment of Competence for the inital or renewal of the Examiner certificate, this is what should be done:
1.  The candidate has to ask for a designation of examiner by submitting the form "Application form for designation of examiner" to the general email address of the Licensing department bcaa.lic.dir@mobilit.fgov.be with the subject "designation of examiner".
The document can be found on our website under the tab :
Formulaires/Formulieren   -  Licences/ vergunningen  

2. BCAA will confirm the examiner by sending an email to the candidate and the examiner, if the mail of the examiner is included in the Licensing database or written on the form.

3. After having received the confirmation from BCAA or from the candidate, the examiner must notify the skill test 24h in advance through the skill test registration application which is available on our website under the tab : Licences/Vergunningen – Pilotes/Piloten – Skill test & proficiency check

The examiner has to fill in his email and will receive an automatic reply with a number. This number is what we call the skill test number registration.

4) When the examiner has checked the candidate he must fill in the Belgian assessment of competence report form. This can be found on our website under the tab  Formulaires/Formulieren   -  Licences/ vergunningen  

On the left upper side of this form there is a box "BCAA skill test number". In this box should be written the skill test number registration the examiner received by automatic reply.
After the check has been done, the examiner gives the original report form to the candidate, takes a copy for his own records and sends the second copy by post to BCAA Licensing to the address you can find on our website on the page Vergunningen/Licences – Piloten/Pilotes - Informations Pratiques/Praktische Informatie.
