A message from Steve Wilson - The re-scheduled VHF course, on the 17th January has been cancelled.
Realistically, its unlikely that we can reconvene a classroom based course until after the end of March. If you wish to hold on until then, fine. I’ll confirm a provisional date that we can all look forward to !
The other option, still available from our course providers, Thames Active, is to undertake the course online. The practical individual assessment would take place when conditions allow.
Please contact Steve to let him know your preference- email@example.com
We will advertise scheduled courses when they become possible.
