What are the credentials of examiners conducting CTs

Hi folks

What are the general credentials of the man / woman awarding us with our Grade at check test time?  I presume they're all ex-ADIs...? Or at least have experience and Diplomas in Driver Education..?  Because if they don't, what makes them qualified to judge our performance as trainers?

If they have only been exposed (during their careers) to Examining, then how could they judge driver training?

Sorry if this sounds like I have a chip on the old shoulder - I don't, honest - it just seems a bit strange to me....

So please tell me that I'm wrong, and that all the Examiners conducting our Check Tests are experienced in driver training.,...

Thanks for reading.

The lady who carried out my Part 3 - and who also conducts check tests - had tried to become an ADI and had failed her Part 3 three times.

No they don't have to be ex-ADI, and I know several who have only ever been examiners.
And they are trained and tested in-house with no independent assessment too.
