Since 2004, National DSWA (Dry Stone Walling Association) has been able to offer accredited certification, in conjunction with Lantra Awards, which gives trainees the opportunity to gain a vocational qualification in dry stone walling at Level 1/Initial, Level 2/Intermediate or Level 3/Advanced (please see certification scheme link).

These qualifications are available via the DSWA branch network and also a number of colleges throughout the country.

Here in Dorset we regularly run level 1 (Initial) and level 2 (intermediate) exams and mock exams,  our  exams will be held in August or early September. These are held at our dedicated exam site at Tyneham Village 5 miles from Wareham Dorset .

Please view our events page for details of forthcoming mocks and exams.
