Two milestones in Distance Learning

The Bath-Based Advanced Distance Learning Team (BBADL) have announced that their 700th student has passed the Advanced amateur radio exam

They have also just passed the £15,000 mark for donations to radio charities.

Steve G0FUW says:

"Not bad since we only started in 2011 and expected about 20 passes a year.
Will we make it to 800 before we close down the Advanced classes?
With the biggest class ever (150 enrolled) and the added incentive of getting through before the syllabus changes to Full, we just might!"

Well done to all the students and tutors!

2018 Last chance to do Advanced Distance Learning under the current syllabus.

Source Southgate ARCV's news site. The current course, the last under the current syllabus started on the first of this month.

The next Advanced Distance Learning course to be run by the Bath-based team is due to start on the first of February 2019, aiming for an exam in July or August. The team will then look at the new syllabus and so there will be no Bath Distance Learning courses for 6 to 12 months.

The course is free but students must provide their own textbook, calculator and arrange their own exam when the time comes. Guidance is provided by the course team. A £40 deposit is required to secure a place on the course, but this is refunded to those who complete the training. Deposits from students who did not complete the course, and generous donations from students who did, have so far raised over fourteen thousand pounds for charities like the RCF, British Wireless for the Blind and RAIB.

Course places are limited; the last four were completely filled well before the start date. So, if you are interested in joining, contact the Course Leader Steve, G0FUW, without delay, via email
