This is a full-time course, which runs for a minimum of six weeks. There is two to three weeks’ theory work. Some work may be completed at home, however, there are some units which must be attended in our training centre. This attendance is required in order to practice essential skills. This is followed by a minimum of four weeks’ practical experience.

Evening classes are run over a period of four weeks, Monday to Thursday, for the theory component. This is then followed by a minimum of four weeks practical experience.

Every effort is made to arrange the practical work as soon as possible after the theory has been completed and in close proximity to the student’s home. However, there can sometimes be delays due to student numbers, facility commitments, and availability of places.
