The process for ADR Certification:

4. Exam Results:
Pass - candidates will receive a certificate within five working days of exam.
Fail - candidates will receive a letter with the areas they need to address and instructions for the repeat exam.
Exam Format:
Papers consist of 36 multiple choice questions (English language only) divided into three sections A, B and C. There is a minimum of eight correct answers per section
in order to pass.
If completing both exams (Basic and Tanker) in one sitting candidates are deemed to have failed if they do not achieve a passing grade in the basic paper.
Appeals Procedure:
If a candidate wishes to appeal the result, the answer book will be sent to a designated member of the ADR Policy Unit in the HSA for a recount. The candidate will then be notified of the result.
Timeframe for Sitting Exam after Training:
• New candidates have 12 months to sit the exam after completing their course.
• Refresher course candidates must sit and pass exam(s) before the expiry date on their current certificate. (If not, they will have to complete the full training course(s) again before applying for the exam).
• Candidates can re-sit an exam repeatedly for a period of six months. After the six months, they must attend the relevant course again before being eligible to take a further exam.
Renewal of Certificates:
The certificates can be renewed at any time in the final year of certification for an additional five-year extension of validity.
CILT recommend candidates attend a refresher course as early as possible in case of repeat exams / courses to complete.
