I sat my DSC1 today at Greenlee in Hexham.
I started on Friday and finished it Sunday afternoon.
Very enjoyable and I learned a lot from Jon Snowdon and Laurie Walton the assessor.
I would highly recommend anyone who is local to Hexham to goto Greenlee, it's a very relaxed and friendly environment with good training practices and equipment.
Obviously I haven't received the official confirmation or cert but I am 100% confident of a pass.
Thanks to everyone who gave me tips and words of advice on recognition etc.
It definitely helped
I just need to sort out my gralloch and then its DSC2 for me
