Training

Training Courses Available – to Spring 2021

 At CPSARC we offer all three levels of training – Foundation, Intermediate and Full. Details of courses can be found on the website, see below. They are normally run over the Autumn/Winter period in the local Port Seton Resource (Community) Centre. Normal pattern is a Foundation Course followed by an Intermediate Course then another Foundation Course followed by an Intermediate Course and finally ending up with the Full Licence Course.

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic the Training Program is not following this pattern due to the unavailability of the Resource (Community) Centre plus unavailability to obtain paper exams from the RSGB. To that end training is being done using ZOOM Meetings basically by working around what can be planned. If interested in any training course’s contact me via the following methods and suitable arrangements will be made to accommodate your training requirements.

**** AT PRESENT DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC THE PROPOSED TRAINING PROGRAM SHOWN BELOW IS ON HOLD , SEE ABOVE FOR WHAT IS IN PLACE AT THE MOMENT ****

If you are interested or you know of anyone who is interested in the following courses can you contact me and also get them to contact me so I can get everyone registered, etc……
There is a fair amount of paperwork involved so the earlier I am contacted the better, plus fees paid allows me to purchase all the course material and confirm room bookings for the courses.

Last year a change on the number of weeks for each course was done due to the new syllabuses starting the 1st September 2019 and 31st July 2020. Although a year has gone by, they are still getting tweaked for any changes.

Note: Fees could change if RSGB Exam Fees or Community Centre Fees are raised.

2020 – 2021 Fees may change depending on the Community Centre Fees
