BCS Solutions Development Oral Examination Preparation Workshop — A 1 day course

contact usEnquire about this course


This workshop is designed to prepare delegates for the Solutions Development Oral Examination. Success in the Oral Examination leads to the award of the BCS Diploma in Solution Development.

The workshop is a loosely structured day with an interactive style. The focus will be on 'oral style' questions and answers, covering the content of the SD Oral Examination syllabus.

We advise delegates to book onto this course a couple of weeks before the real oral event, wherever practical, so that delegates have time to prepare themselves further if necessary.


The course prepares participants to sit the 50-minute oral examination leading to the completion of the BCS Diploma in Solution Development.
