Online Validation

Online Validation

In Somerset we are aware that, like most Counties across the country, we do not have sufficient Training Advisers to meet the needs of our adult volunteers who are completing their training. In order to help this situation, we have introduced “on-line validation”. This method is not aimed at replacing Training Advisers who do a great job but to supplement our offering where, in some circumstances, this method may be appropriate.

On this page you will find a series of links to web-based validation questionnaires, these are based on the “Check your Knowledge” questions in your Adult Personal File.

All completed and submitted forms will be reviewed by a Training Adviser (this is likely to be your nominated Training Adviser if advised) and they will arrange to contact you if they think it necessary.

Good luck and if you need any support please get in touch.
