Examination Syllabus

Accreditation for the core membership categories is achieved via examination. In most cases, sitting a BDMA examination is preceded by practical experience, relevant training and study of the appropriate BDMA Training & Reference Module, the BDMA Standards and the associated examination syllabus.

Examinations are based on the examination syllabus and candidates should study this carefully prior to sitting the exam.

There are various syllabus’ available for download, such as The Claims Technician Examination Syllabus and The Insurance Technician Examination Syllabus, and they can all be found on the examination syllabus page here.

Where examinations are over subscribed we make every effort to provide additional venues and dates but this cannot be guaranteed and technicians are advised to book as early as possible.

Dates and venues are advised directly to members and advertised in The Standard Magazine.

We hope that studying in line with the syllabus will provide the core knowledge that will increase technicians’ abilities, improve their job satisfaction and enable them to gain accreditation, recognition and respect as damage management professionals.
