If you are applying for a Project Licence you have to complete an accredited course covering EU Modules 9-11, as well as the full PIL A & B course.  If your project licence includes surgical procedures then you'll also need to attend additional PIL C training (Modules 21 & 22).

The PPL Holder Course is structured around a series of presentations delivered by experts in that particular field. Rather than straight lectures, the format is that of a busy, sometimes intense, but always informal and friendly round the table discussion for about 6-9 delegates. See below  timetable and the FAQs for more general information.

COVID19 UPDATE. We won't let a bit of RNA stop us and our next course will be run remotely with a series of interactive sessions ran over 4 days. See below for draft timetable

REMOTE  teaching timetable

This is a guide to enable you to plan ahead. Each session is scheduled  to last  a maximum of two hours  (possibly less in practice).  The sessions will be live and interactive, as per our custom, but without our wonderful food or coffee (the fee reflects this). It is important that you are committed to attending all the sessions though. Feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
