The Full Licence training is by its nature more difficult and will require more self study to back up the knowledge taught in the classroom. The club have put through candidates from all walks of life with a 100% success rate so there is no reason to fear that this level cannot be achieved.
For this qualification the candidate will be taken back to the fundamentals of radio and its circuitry, examining the building blocks which have been described in the two previous levels as block diagrams to component level.
There is some mathematics involved and candidates require the basic knowledge how to apply certain formulae. All the formulae are provided with the examination paper.
The course will last as long or as short as the individual candidate’s capabilities and background require; this level is purely academic and no practical work is necessary to enter the examination.
The Foundation and Intermediate examinations must have been successfully completed before you can take this course.
The examination on completion of the course consists of a multiple choice paper with 58 questions with 2 hours to answer them. Examination fees can be paid online here https://rsgb.org/main/club-exam-bookings/. The club will book the examination papers as there may be multiple pupils taking examinations at the same time.
If you have not already joined the RSGB you should investigate this as they provide a lot of facilities including a monthly magazine and a bookshop. Membership to those under the age of 21 is free.
Courses are taught by Dave, G0CJG.
