The basic theme of this qualification is self study with trainer support through Skype, Whatsapp or telephone etc. There is no formal lecturing in IDSE.
The qualification has been carefully designed to meet industry requirements for occupational safety and health provisions. The existing diplomas in OH&S provide only generic information about occupational health and safety and are more information oriented.
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.
- The IDSE course is assessed by 2 closed book written exams comprising of 150 marks each.
- Passing marks are 50% for each Unit
- Maximum time allowed for each exam is 5 hours
- Candidates have the option to sit in both Units separately i.e. a gap of 2 months to 12 months.
