Participants will undertake a mock examination based around cases that might easily appear in the exam. Individual detailed feedback on performance will be provided to each candidate after the course either by e-mail or MS Teams, as per individual request.
The programme has been updated to make it suitable for those studying for the limited scope reporting options.
