Well I will only put my name down when a date and location are confirmed as I may have to get time off work etc. and may be too far away to be viable!

I'm not sure if they are bad habits or not! But yes i understand the law of being 18 to handle pyro so fortunately I am old enough! Yep have taken exams before and am just about to take my A-levels, brilliant fun! Any idea of the format of the exam? Multiple answer, multi-mark questions etc.? Just wondering as it sounds promising.

So basically forget bad habits. I was just wondering as i thought i may be at a disadvantage considering i havn't had as much experience as some of the other people interested! Obviously if i commit then i would want to know i could actually pass!

Thanks for that. I was just wondering in particular about prior knowledge as im only 18! As i said i've been involved in quite a few displays now and so have good enough knowledge of firework types (mines,shells, cakes, gerbs etc.) and fusing and set-up techniques. Any idea what day of the week it would be on? I'm guessing weekend and i can only do sundays at the moment!

Just a couple of questions!
1. Do you need to have had any substantial experience or prior to attend this course? I have helped set-up and fire around 10 displays to date.
2. Any revision needed for the exam? Or is everything required taught on the day?
3. Who actually runs the course and what qualification/certification do you get?

Just wondered as it sounds appealing!
