Training Course Dates and Times
The full-time course is based on the STAT guidelines of 533 class hours per year for three years, 1600 hours in total, plus 8 hours of home study each week. In practice, we will usually aim to make 560 class hours available for students each year. There are also many options for part-time study.
The course consists of three 12 week terms each year (35 weeks), with each term divided by a half term week.
The classes run on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays each week, from 09.00 - 13.00.
