The popular course will start on Tuesday 20th September and ONLINE classes will run every Tuesday and Thursday from 7pm to 10pm for 10 WEEKS.  There will also be classes scheduled for two Saturdays and a full week before the exam on the 7th December 2022 (finished just in time to enjoy Christmas).  Over 100 hours of classes will be scheduled and learners must attend at least 75 hrs to sit the exam.
