Advance Exam Course 2014

Enrol now for Advanced Distance Learning Course

A new distance learning course for the amateur radio advanced exam will be starting in January

The course, which starts in January 2014, runs until July.

There are no course fees but students are required to make a deposit towards their exam up front, as an incentive to keep going; if they drop out, the money goes to a radio charity, if they see it through they get it back to pay for their exam.

Each week students will receive directed reading instructions and a set of revision questions, every three weeks they will also receive a progress test and mock exams at the end of the course. Students’ answers are marked and worked solutions provided. Allocated e-tutors are available to fill in gaps and provide clarifications when required.

You will need your own copy of the Advanced textbook, a non-programmable scientific calculator and access to the internet; material is distributed via a dedicated Yahoo Group.

You will need to set aside at least two hours a week. Applicants should not underestimate the commitment required to do this home study option, but those that have seen it through to the end have had a very high pass rate (over 95%).

The course team are based in Bath but have a growing number of remote tutors across the UK.
