You can get up to 5 points per hazard so there is a maximum of 75 points available, you need 57 points to pass. You must pass both parts at the same time to pass the Part 1 exam. There is no limit in how many times you can take the test. If you choose to train with Bill Plant we will give you all the materials you will need, along with online and telephone mentoring to help with your studies.
