Deadline to advise us will be Friday the 12th February if you have friends who may also wish to sit an exam.

FOUNDATION EXAM

There are two components to the Foundation exam Theory and Practical
The Theory is a Multi Choice exam, and the practical is assessed by the assessor. You need to be able to identify common components and show understanding of the operating standards.
