Practical assessments were dropped from the syllabus in 2021. Shirehampton club will still provide these in order for students to become more familiar with construction, components, connectors, soldering and calibration equipment.
The examination on completion of the courses consists of a multiple choice paper with 46 questions with 1 hour 30 minutes 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
Courses are run on demand, there is no schedule. We try to plan courses to commence following the Foundation Course.
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.
Intermediate Courses are taught by John, G4DVV.
