DIA or ROSPA Diploma

Hi I am considering doing one of these diplomas and am aware of the advantages of the ROSPA Diploma to those considering the fleet sector of ADI work. However is there anything to recommend the DIA diploma other than an increase in knowledge and a few more letters after your name? I have no desire to work in fleet but which diploma do you feel is better? Thanks in advance.

Re: DIA or ROSPA Diploma

They are completely different animals. The RoSPA Dip is available for all drivers, and therefore is specific to that audience, and as a spin of will give you a Fleet badge as you are an ADI. The DIA Dip DE, is specific to ADIs and has more relative themes in the study, and does not offer a fleet badge at the end.

The DIA Dip DE is the one I would recommend based on your remit above.

I  run a driving school and am ORDIT registered and am hoping to get more credibility in the training industry vis a vis other training competition. Would be great to train more of our own instructors.

Re: DIA or ROSPA Diploma

Why not go for a more academic teaching qualification then?

Re: DIA or ROSPA Diploma

Is the Diploma not very academic then? Does it not have much credibility?

I was thinking something more generic, like a Cert Ed, it would also open more doors into other things!

Re: DIA or ROSPA Diploma

There are lots of paid jobs that require something like a Cert Ed, but if your moving into instructor training it may also help with that too, just my own personal view, I found it very beneficial!

Re: DIA or ROSPA Diploma

Thanks for that daz6215. I will certainly consider that as an alternative then to either of these diplomas.
