A Foundation Training Course took place at Foxton over the weekend of 19-20th March.



This was the largest course we had ever run, with nine students.

The nine successful candidates on the Foundation Course


The excellent tuition by Peter and the training team combined with the hard work of the candidates was rewarded with 100% success in the examination.

Meanwhile, another four candidates, who recently completed the Intermediate Course, sat the Intermediate Examination.
They also achieved a pass in every case.

The successful Intermediate Examination candidates


Very well done by all those concerned in the courses and examinations.
