Theme of IDSE qualification is self study because it has been designed for qualified and experienced professionals. There are no formal lectures however; trainer support will be available for one year from the date of registration.
The candidate and trainer will have a one on one interaction through Whatsapp, Skype or telephone call. The trainer will give one question to the candidate who will attempt the question in a real time exam environment. The trainer will then mark the answer and will let the candidate know the strength and weaknesses.
Trainer will cover all topics of both units and will prepare the candidate to sit in the exam in professional manner.
Note: IDSE has been designed for experienced and qualified professionals who are comfortable with self study and seek quite little trainer support. Those who find it difficult in self study should preferably not apply for registration.

However, both units of IDSE have been designed in such a manner that the successful professionals of Unit 1 will be able to establish, implement, maintain, manage and continually improve the OH&S Management system based on any standard including OHSAS 18001 or ISO 45001.
Similarly, Unit 2 has given more emphasis on the engineering related skill, knowledge and information for the requirement of occupational safety and health provisions at the workplace. The Unit 2 provides the professionals with the core knowledge of engineering which they can translate into skill base for engineering design assessments, material failure modes, incident investigations, reliability engineering, structure analysis, equipment selection, engineering risk assessments, engineering control designs and assessments, mathematical and geometric calculations and much more.
