The Bath Based Distance Learning team has helped over a 1,000 students to pass UK amateur radio exams, with pass rates consistently above the national average. The next Intermediate course will run from January to May 2024. Students will receive weekly work packages via a virtual classroom. There will be no charge for the training, but students will need to provide their own textbook, scientific calculator, electronic parts and tool kit. Students also have to arrange their own exam at the end of the course, but advice will be provided at the appropriate time. As part of the application process, there will be some pre-course work to ensure students are able to use the online learning systems and to be sure they are ready to study in January 2024. To receive course application details, please email Bath Based Distance Learning Team Leader Steve, G0FUW, on
