We have now set dates for the Foundation and Intermediate courses / exams.

Training will take place on the above dates. Exams will take place on the 19th with the Foundation at 15:00 hours and the Intermediate following on at about 16:15 hours. This gives the option for successful foundation candidates to immediately sit the intermediate exam.

Membership of the society is required to join the course and / or sit the exam, this covers costs and insurance. Annual subscriptions are Adult £15. OAP £10. Students £5 and under 16 years free. Please fill in the appropriate form (above) if you have not already done so and forward it to the secretary (cheques made payable to IOMARS).

All candidates have to submit a CATCE application for each exam they want to sit (form above) please forward the appropriate form/s to the tutor, John Butler (cheques made payable to IOMARS). Fees are as follows: Foundation Exam will be £22.50; Intermediate Exam will be £27.50, so if you wish to sit both exams you need to pay £50. NB if you want to take both exams and fail the foundation examination you will not be able to take the intermediate exam.

If a candidate has any special requirements e.g. visually / hearing / mobility impaired, require a mentor during training or reader during the examination please advise the society on return of the documentation.

Dont forget to buy the books ’Foundation now' and 'Intermediate Licence - Building on the Foundation' sold by the RSGB http://www.rsgbshop.org/ . You need to have read the appropriate book before the course starts.

Candidates taking the Intermediate examination need to prepare a construction project, which will be assessed by one of the tutors (need to see you doing some soldering) facilities for this will be available at Eary Cushlin or before the training in the Society shack at Foxdale.
