Bath-Based Distance Learning Team (BBDL)


Distance Learning for Full Licence Exam

A New Full Licence Level Course

Since 2011, the Bath-Based Distance Learning Team (BBDL) has helped over 900 students to obtain their Full Licence. Student feedback is always very positive, and the pass rate continues to be well over 80%, compared with a national average of around 66%.

Having completed a second Intermediate Licence course in May, the team are now planning another Full Licence level course. The course will run from the end of August to December.

Students will receive weekly work packages via an online classroom and will have access to weekly online tutorials. Each student is allocated to one of the remote tutors who provide feedback and additional guidance. There are weekly quizzes to check on progress and at the end of the course, there will be a number of mock exams.

There is no charge for the training but applicants must work through some pre-course material and complete a quiz to be eligible for a place. This focuses on the ‘new’ topics that were introduced to the Intermediate syllabus in 2019. The pre-course classroom aims to make sure applicants can use the BBDL systems and to ensure that they are ready for the Full training.

Each student will need to provide their own RSGB Full Licence textbook and arrange their own exam at the end of the course. Advice will be provided as part of the course.

The deadline for course applications is Tuesday 26 July. To request full details and an application form, please e-mail:
