Isn't hands on better?

We enjoy meeting and interacting with students during our in-person courses, but that is not practical for everyone. An FCE is not a technically challenging assessment, most of the testing is done by the client; "please lift this box or please move these pegs". The complexity of the FCE comes from the volume of tests and the interpretation of the data.
