The duration of the course is 18 hours (3 days) and we usually run the course one day a week over 3 weeks, with the examination on the morning of the fourth day. We usually aim to start the course at 9.00am each day and therefore taking into account time for refreshment and lunch breaks, the course usually finishes around 4.30pm each day.
