New questions in the examscenter
From April 1st you can prepare yourself for the exam with the newest version of the theory book of SVH Social Responsibility. The existing question bank has been supplemented with new exam questions and you can come across these new questions in the exams.
In response to the new Dutch theory book, there is also a new English version (SVH Social Responsibility 1st print, 2018, ISBN: 9789052113050). The renewed version of the theory book has been available in the webshop of SVH since April 4th. From April 16th, 2018 the exam questions can only be answered with the new version of the theory book.
Translated buttons and instrutionscenter
The exam Social Responsibility is offered in different languages. However, the buttons in the exams are only in Dutch. To provide the best services to all candidates, we pay attention to the translation of the buttons on all the COEL-exam locations.
Candidates who take the exam in a language other than Dutch, can receive a sheet with the translations of the buttons at the exam. This sheet is available at every COEL-exam location.
In addition, there is a translated COEL instruction sheet at each COEL-exam location available. This instruction sheet contains the various instructions for taking an exam translated into different languages. Think of instructions such as storing things in one safe, showing a valid identity card and being not allowed to eat and drink during the exam. In this way we offer optimal services for every candidate.
Possible consequences for exam Social Responsibility by prohibition on smoking areascenter
The court in The Hague has decided that a smoking area in a catering establishment is illegal. In the appeal filed by Clean Air Netherlands (CAN) against the Dutch State is decided that everyone has the right to enter a catering facility without the risk to come into contact with smoke.
The smoking area, as an exception to the law, is therefore prohibited.
Consequences for the exam SVH Social Responsibility
As long as the outcome of the judgment is not certain, the exam Social Responsibility will not be adjusted. The State has the time to appeal against the ruling in cassation for a period of three months. SVH, in consultation with the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, decided to make no adjustmenst in the SVH-exam during the period of those three months.
If the State does not go into cassation, the final terms and the exam Social Responsibility will be adjusted directly and components about smoking areas will be deleted.

A candidate speakscenter
Recently Diana de Reu has achieved a 9 for the exam Social Responsibility. We asked her about her experiences. Diana decided to do the exam because she has added a liquor store to her supermarket. Therefore she needed the diploma Social Responsibility.
How did Diana experience the exam? "Fine, the questions were pretty clear." Diana was also very pleased with the services provided by MSH: "MSH is easy to reach," she said. To prepare for the exam, Diana did an online course. Which tip would Diana want to give to future candidates? "If you practice well with the practice exams which you get during a course, then the exam is easy to take."
