Course outline

We use a fast track approach which often yields greater pass rates than traditional, longer programmes. The course consists of two blocks of training, each a week long, with tutor-led sessions every morning and self-study e-learning sessions every afternoon. This is followed by a revision day, perfectly timed for the national exams in June, September and December.

It is important to note that during the training programme, delegates should be prepared to carry out self-study each afternoon and homework of at least one hour per night to review the course content of the day. We run a mock exam after each weekly block of study to consolidate the learning of NGC1 and GC2.
