Thread: Training body membership

  1. #1

    Training body membership

    I need to finally get my level two done but whilst looking for training providers ie basc / bds they ask for your membership number as I'm neither a member of either is it essential to be as it adds undue expense

    Hi Swatty, that is something I have never thought of, why don't you ring them and get the answer from the horses mouth I'm sure there are a few people that would also like to know.
    Mind you, if you are a shooter, particularly a stalker, it would be wise to join one or the other just for the insurance alone.
    I am no longer a member of BDS (after 30+ years) but am a staunch supporter of BASC.

    You could always go with one of the other assessment centres - Newton Rigg looks local to you. Take a look on DMQ's website under DSC2 assessment.

    Don't think you need to be a member. I registered for level 1 through BASC. I wasn't a member. All I then had to do was use my Hunter number on the registration for level 2. Never have been a member of BASC but they still provide the training. Hope that helps.

    You do not need to be a member of BASC to do your DSC2 with them.
