Intermediate Licence course & exam ***New Syllabus***
Nov 2 @ 9:00 am – Nov 3 @ 4:30 pm

If you already have a Foundation Licence and would like to take your next step in Amateur Radio then why not enrol on our Intermediate Licence course.

This course is 2 weekends of classroom training  2/3 November and 16/17 November (with the middle weekend off for your own private study), all the practical assessments and guidance.

The only ‘extra’ you need to consider is that students must build a radio related project in their own time but will be required to demonstrate it working on the course. We can recommend a variety of kits and these are required to demonstrate a student’s ability to identify components, solder etc. The training team is on hand to help if you get stuck. The core is that it must be an ‘off the shelf’ kit, be related to the hobby in some way and must require soldering of individual components.

The exam is held on the second Sunday afternoon and indicative results will be given on the day. You can select to take the exam on paper or via the online test system.
