Training and Examinations

Training and Examinations

Training levels:  Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced.

Training and Examination information:

Training normally carried on Saturday mornings in the club premises between 10am and noon.  If no candidates have arrived by 10.15 the session may be closed.

Normally we expect a significant amount of self-study with support being available from the trainers to assist with problems. The appropriate training books are available from the RSGB Bookshop.

We do not run formal training courses and candidates can study at their own pace.

Foundation and Intermediate exams are usually held on Saturdays before the training sessions.  We need about 3 weeks notice to arrange these exams.

The Advanced exams are also booked at times of our choosing but may take a little longer to organise.  It is also possible to sit the exams using the RSGB remotely invigilated online exams ( ).


Aberdeen ARS has an RCF registered examination centre
