hi!! My course was a 12 week course 2 hours a week on a monday night. each night covered something different, then at the end of it you do a multiple choice test like the above post! we had lots of hand outs so i would advise you to get a massive folder!!! i also took a notebook but found i didnt use it much as it was more general discussion rather than note taking!! i really enjoyed the course and worried like mad for the test, but in the end it was no problem!!!

im sure you will love it!! x x

My Icp course was once a week term time only. It was slightly boring but you will get to meet lots of other people.
You get a test at the end which isn't too difficult.

Good luck X

Mine was held in the local college one day a week from 9.00 - 3.00 for three weeks, had lots of handouts and a great lecturer ended with a multiple question exam nothing to worry about at all.

Good luck with yours

mine was over 8 weeks with two hours on a monday night.

i had to do an assignment/essay at the end not a multiple test. its strange how different counties do it differently

Mine was 6 weeks long, 1 evening a week for 3 1/2 hours. We were given a folder, pens, even a tax disc holder! They briefly covered most things, but after reading on here I think they didn't explain enough about policies and procedures, or maybe I'd just fallen asleep by then ;) I didn't do a test at the end of mine, which puzzled me after reading some of the threads on here. I just assumed that it was a standard course and didn't realise that they differed from county to county.

Ooops, forgot to add...good luck!
