DGSA Examination Techniques & Pitfalls
2 March 2020
This one-day seminar is aimed at anyone who is planning to take the DGSA examinations for the first time or is requalifying in 2020 and require information and advice regarding what to expect on the day. The seminar will go into details regarding the ADR regulations so prior knowledge is an advantage.
In the UK the Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor (DGSA) qualification is awarded to candidates on the successful completion of three examinations. However, for many candidates these are the first exams they may have taken in a ‘long while’ and hence they struggle with the intricacies of exam technique.
The exam is an ‘open book’ format and so all the information necessary is at the candidate’s fingertips. However, to be successful candidates also need to understand ‘how to apply the knowledge’ and ‘what the exam markers will be looking for’. Without these aides invariably candidates ‘panic’ in the exam missing vital and sometimes easy marks.
