Set-up and examination
This program will grant you unlimited access to our online learning environment for a year. Subjects are added to this learning environment in phases throughout the year, about two per month. The theory consists of a variety of working methods: from texts to videos and podcasts.
Each subject starts with a baseline measurement. This allows you to determine what you already know about a subject. If you are already familiar with the theory, you can go straight to the test to complete the subject.
- Laws and regulations
- Current developments
Each subject has its own test. This test consists of one or a few questions that are selected from an extensive database. To renew your DSI certification, you must have passed at least 80% of the tests at the end of the calendar year. Once you have successfully completed all of the tests, you will receive a certificate for this course. You can take the tests as often as you want.
