via the RSGB: Distance learning for Full licence exam

Since 2011, the Bath Based Distance Learning (BBDL) team has helped nearly 1,000 students to obtain their Full licence.

Student feedback is always very positive and the pass rate continues to be well over 80 percent, compared with a national average of around 66 percent.

The BBDL team is now planning another Full licence level course.

The course will run from the end of August 2023 to December 2023, with exams in January 2024.

Students receive weekly work packages via an online classroom and have access to weekly online tutorials.

Each student is allocated to one of the remote tutors who provide feedback and additional guidance.

There are weekly quizzes to check on progress and at the end of the course there are a number of mock exams.

There is no charge for the training, but applicants must work through some pre-course material and complete a quiz to be eligible for a place.

This focuses on the ‘new’ Intermediate topics that were introduced to the syllabus in 2019.

The aims of the pre-course classroom are to make sure applicants can use the BBDL systems, and to ensure that they are ready for the current Full training syllabus.

Each student will need to provide their own RSGB Full licence textbook and arrange their own exam at the end of the course.

Advice will be provided as part of the course.

The deadline for course applications is Tuesday, 25 July 2023.

To request full details and an application form, please email BBDL Team Leader, Steve, G0FUW, on g0fuw@bbdl.org.uk.
