Successful Foundation course 29 Feb and 1 Mar 2020

BDARS ran its popular Foundation Licence Course recently.  There were more candidates than we had exam papers, but that didn’t stop the extra people attending for the training sessions – they will be taking the exams very soon. Well done all candidates – our fingers are crossed waiting for the results!

We will be running the course again, so please register you interest with the Secretary, email: secretary@bdars.org.au to book your place.
