When you are a BRATS member you could take as short a time or a long, as you wish before you take your exam but the conditions are :-

  1. A practical assessmentof the syllabus required is no longer necessary.
    The Examinations and Syllabus Review Group (ESRG) and the ESC will consider whether it is desirable to reinstate some mandatory practical tests, which are compatible with distance learning and remote examination, and details will be included in the forthcoming syllabus revision. The amateur radio community will be consulted on these as part of any syllabus consultation.

  2. You may carry out self study from the web site and the RSGB book on the Foundation licence, but as a member of the BRATS you can take advantage of back up of the club's tutors by email / short sessions at club nights when there are no other activities such as a formal talks / presentations.

You could as a student take as little as 5 weeks to pass your Foundation examination from the date of your Practical Assessments !!

With that in mind enjoy your self studies and contact us if you would like more information on the BRATS.
