The SDBP® exam applies a unique approach to validating the traits and behaviours in addition to the competencies through an online role-play story based exam, where you take on the role of various employees in a fictional organisation, drawn from a synthesis of the creator’s experiences.
In the exam, you will have to choose which is the best outcome from a multiple choice question. There are typically 20 questions to answer per course. Exam rationales are provided to help understanding and are presented once the exam is complete. There is no time limit but a 100% pass rate is required after 3 attempts.
