This year, Practice Meets for branch members will be run in conjunction with Training Courses but we still need to know, prior to the date, how many people plan to attend.
Test candidates should read the Craftsman Certification Scheme booklet and understand fully what is required of them during the test.
Please Note - Applications must be sent to DSWA HQ at least 6 weeks prior to the test date.
