I'm pleased to announce that Graham (G4DPH) will be starting the Foundation course training commencing Tuesday 8th October. Some candidates are already in place but if any member knows of someone who might want to take the course then please let me know or come to the Social club next Tuesday evening.
The course is free but you will need to bring along materials for taking notes and a copy of the New Foundation Licence course book is advisable. This will cover the course material for the revised syllabus. Also it is expected that candidates should join the club and we are able to provide details of how this can be done.
It is a 6 week course comprising 2 x 3 week blocks on the following dates.
No date has been set for the examination as yet.
Although it is anticipated that these training courses will become more regular as always it is demand driven so we can't be sure when the next one will be.
A big Welcome to Steve Wilson and Will Sparkes who joined our Society last evening.
