RSGB Foundation Exam

Further to the success last year where six people gained their RSGB Foundation Licenses we are offering option to do the RSGB Foundation Practical Assessments and Exam at the conference. As last year this will be limited to six places.

Please contact Phil M0DNY ( or craag on the IRC channel) if you would be interested in this. The only additional cost would be the RSGB Exam Fee of £27.50
