ROSPA and IAM

Hi all have just started training for ROSPA and have also started the IAM course at the same time. My trainer just happens to be an observer for both ROSPA and IAM so am running both together with obviously two tests  at the end.

Went out this morning was told to change gear using the thumb up and thumb down method, which felt a little strange as I have always tried to let my fingers feel there way through the gear box rather than pushing the gears into position.

My biggest fault was gear and brakes overlapping, with a bit of practice I should be ok. A little less speed on the approach to turns will give me a little extra time to change gear after the speed is reduced.

My bend technique was a little out, went to the wrong side on one but commented the correct procedure doh.

Have my next session in a couple of weeks and looking forward to it.
I hope to pass both by Christmas.

Re: ROSPA and IAM

I'm just curious - why are doing both tests at the same time  :?

I'd have thought it would make more sense to do one then leave a bit of time until you do the other so that you could have continuing practice / assessment rather than a big lump now  :?

Re: ROSPA and IAM

I can't understand why you want to do both at the same time either, Why not do the IAM first then do the ROSPA, or visa versa that would be better IMHO.

Re: ROSPA and IAM

I didn't plan to do both at the same time, and to be honest I've never really been able to see the difference between the two, only one is graded and the other is a Pass/Fail.

I initially applied and paid for the IAM but was told after receiving my pack that I would have to wait 4 months for an observer.

So me being me thought I would do Rospa whilst I waited, they found me an observer within a fortnight,
On meeting Ken I explained what had happened and he informed me he was also an observer for IAM and ROSPA, and if I wanted we could do the training together as the test was much the same.

If I am up to test standard why would I want to continue practicing and having assessments, that makes no sense to me.
At the end of the day its just a drive with a bit of commentry, which I do every day.
Please don't think I'm arrogant, reading back through it does sound like it.
