After the course we are always on hand for any advice or questions after completion. We have a lot of contacts and connections in the industry who keep us posted with any vacancies they may have just for our students. Please feel at ease as we have a very comfortable and approachable teaching environment as we work with complete beginners, some who have never been in the
industry before so it is completely new to them and we’d love to have you on board. Once you have completed your practicals and exam day*, you will then receive your official certificate from the awarding body (CIBTAC or Habia depending on the course unit).

*Please note that you may only sit your exam once all portfolios and coursework have been completed. You can only sit your laser exam once you have completed 4 case studies, these can be completed at our venue or your own with sufficient evidence. You may be required to sit your exam on a future rotation exam date if you need more time to complete coursework or case studies.
