Admin please feel free to move this if its not in the correct section and apologies if this has been mentioned already.
We have just completed another successful Level 1 course with an expected 100% pass rate. This morning, the day of the tests, a candidate approached me with some concerns - a number of questions from the DMQ training bank were concerning him, according to his online training service, a number of the questions we had gone through over the weekend and for which they had the answers were wrong according to the online service.
A good ten minutes went by whilst I assured the candidate that the answers he had from the online provider were absolute nonsense, it was only when our assessor, Peter Pursglove arrived who confirmed that they were wrong that he relaxed a little.
If you are going to use an online revision system please, please, please make sure it is from a reputable and reliable source such as Jelen or BDS. The approved providers of this course put a lot of time and effort into making sure the information you receive is correct. I am approved by BASC and use David Strettons manual and have been through the manual from front to back with David to ensure that the information is accurate and that we know the answers, I speak to both Peter and David regularly and make sure I keep up to speed but this nonsense really incenses me. For obvious reasons I cannot name the outfit on a public forum.
This is not the first time this has happened with candidates on my courses with the same online service. Interestingly two of their questions with wrong answers came up on the papers today and three of the candidates used the service. Apparently DMQ are well aware of this situation.
