What is required to take the course?
The intermediate course uses the foundation course learning as a building block and hence entry requires students to hold Foundation Licence examination passes as a pre-requisite. Evidence of this is in the form of a pass certificate or an M3/M6 validation document. These will be required at the commencement of the course and also on the examination night.
What does it consist of?
The course consists of 38 modules requiring approximately 19 hours of study, plus a constructional project that has to be completed in the students own time.
