There is a short written test and an assessment at the end of the course. You will use the very latest Standard Horizon training radios which are proper radios but have been adapted for training purposes, we also use the latest Light Master training simulators.

Unlike many other training centres, our fee includes all pre course information packs, the licence fee of £30.00 and the assessment fee.
