Essex Ham have released statistics for the eight free online Foundation courses that they ran in 2019
They note that this year’s numbers are lower than previous years, as they stopped for 5 months so that they could update the course material for the new RSGB syllabus. This meant re-recording videos, re-writing classroom modules, creating new mock questions, and updating the slides.
Essex Ham’s last complete course before the break was in June 2019, with a record of 82 candidates looking to complete before the syllabus change.
They ran a small course in July for some last-minute candidates, and restarted in December 2019, breaking the record with 85 attendees.
