Training And Exams

We offer training for the Foundation, Intermediate and Full License. The Theory and the Exam are held at the Community Room Staveley Fire Station, you will be given detailed directions as to its location when you apply to take the course.The room is Disabled Friendly and is registered with and passed by the RSGB as an “appropriate place”. The cost of the Foundation License is £50. This includes all training and exam fees. All you will need to buy is the book ” Foundation Course Now ” which can be purchased off the Internet or from the club and if you choose to join the club when you apply to take the course you will get the book at a discounted price. The course is run over 3 Saturdays between 10:00 and 16:00 with the exam being sat on  the final Saturday.


You will be given an indicative mark at the end of the exam which will give an idea as to if you have passed or not. You will not be given a definitive result for about a week when you will be sent your result by post from the RSGB. As soon as you apply to take the course you will need to click on the link “OFCOM” on the Links Page and register. You will then be able to apply for a license and choose a Call Sign from the available list when you have passed your exam. You can also get the result of your exam quicker because your not waiting for the post man to deliver it.

If you are looking to take your Intermediate or full license then please contact us to discuss your needs.
