Exam Trends: Thriving Amidst the Pandemic Challenges

Nov 3, 2023

Our ability to navigate the extremely challenging times whilst not reducing our service offering, and in fact growing our client base, is a testament to our resilience and reputation in the market.

Since 2013, the number of exams delivered by Aspeq each year has generally been on the rise, peaking at 99,000 n 2019.  

Through the Covid19 Pandemic, we experienced – and overcame - some of our most challenging times. As a company with a large proportion of our clients in the global aviation industry, the pandemic led to a decline in exam numbers with our lowest figures since 2015.  

During this time, we focused on diversifying our customer base which included the certification of many non-aviation organisations throughout New Zealand and Australia. In addition to this, we were able to grow our customer base with four new international aviation customers: Thailand, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Aviation Security in the UK. This has helped drive our rapid recovery post-pandemic and build on the great successes of recent years.

During the 2022-23 financial year, we successfully reached a major milestone by conducting more than 100,000 exams. As of October 2023, we are well-positioned to exceed this number once more.

Our ability to navigate the extremely challenging times whilst not reducing our service offering, and in fact growing our client base, is a testament to our resilience and reputation in the market. This achievement would not have been possible without the dedication and innovation of our committed team.
