qestion about RAD

Post by Dkd1988 » Wed Sep 09, 2015 5:48 pm

Good afternoon,

I'm currently preparing for my RAD and have been using the brilliant resources on here to help me.

However a friend of mine told me that he failed the RAD for shaking the hand of the prisoner (actor) during the role play.

Does anyone know if this is true, if so how do you advise rejecting a handshake without offending the person offering you there hand?

Thanks for the help

When I went for my RAD, during the briefing one of the other candidates asked if you were allowed to shake the hand of the role players. The moderator answered that the role players will not touch you, you shouldn't attempt to touch them, hope this helps :)

The role plays are made to be realistic, in what you may encounter to see how you react.

Keep it real for the situation at play. From the second you enter the room to when you leave you are being assessed,
Nothing is impossible, just try, try and try again eventually the odds are you will succeed.
