    Course Success Rates    

It is a pleasure to report that the Foudation and Intermediate licence courses organised by the club have been so successful. The Foundation course has had a 90% pass rate and the Intermediate has had a satisfying 100% pass rate from over 40 candidates.

The success of the courses is in no small measure due to the efforts and enthusiasm of the Instructors Peter Munson and Dave Winfield.

Sadly due to costs and the low numbers of candidates at one time we are unable to offer Advanced level courses.

However anyone who is studying for the Advanced exam and is finding  particular difficulties with one or two areas would be welcome to come along to the club where I am sure we would be able to help.
