How the CSJK Exam is structured

The CSJK examination consists of:

  • 2.5 hour written paper
  • 20 minute identification examination
  • 20 minute oral examination

Timings for the ID and oral examinations are normally given to individuals on the day.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We expect all candidates to possess good general knowledge regarding Health & Safety legislation as this is not covered within the two-day Control & Eradication of Japanese Knotweed training course.


Examination Preparation

An examination preparation course is available and is particularly useful for those candidates who have not recently sat an exam, to help them practice exam techniques by working through some past papers with a tutor. It also provides a valuable opportunity for candidates to clarify any areas where they may be unsure prior to sitting the formal examination.
