For the second year, we’re running a “taster” day aimed at Licentiate Members of the Faculty of Occupational Hygiene who are intending to sit the BOHS Diploma examination – either the written exam and or/ the oral – to help them prepare for the exam(s)
The principal objectives of the day are to:
- Provide an introduction to the format of the written exam – i.e. how the papers are structured, what topic areas are covered
- Provide an introduction to the format of the oral examination – i.e. the makeup of the panel, exam duration, how questions are asked, topics covered
- Discuss example questions and approaches to answering them
We will spend an hour or so on the exam structure and format. The rest of the day will be devoted to discussing example questions that could appear on the written exams and also typical questions that could be asked at the oral exam.
We have limited time, so will not be able to cover every topic area, nor is it intended to teach advanced occupational hygiene to someone with limited experience. It will, hopefully, be beneficial to those who feel they are ready to take the exam but need to know more about it and want to get some idea how to tackle it and identify topics they need to revise.
If you’re interested, you can book here via the BOHS website.
