Currently doing my foundation course and I had to pay £27.50 to do the exam and £1 per night we did revision, presentations ect. We meet once a week and the course lasts for about 6 weeks.

The club owns its building so hasn't got to cover rent costs.

Club membership possibly accounts for half of the £37.00 and is usually done to ensure insurance coverage whilst on their premises.

The rest should be for admin etc as the trainer(s) usually do it for love of the hobby and it's a fair bit of their time and even the £37.00 would not cover a decent hourly wage.
