Level 1 & 2 Intensive (international/long distance attendees)

£1,999.00

Combining two of our syllabus levels into a 5 day period, this course has been specially listed to accomodate those travelling from further afield.

UK Detailing Academy’s recommended syllabus path remains that structured learning over a longer period remains the most effective way to deliver vocational education. It’s the reason we disagree with supposed one week “master detailer” courses in principle, there’s just too much information in a short space of time. However we recognise that, for some, the logistical challenges can be both burdensome and financially off-putting.

With that in mind we have taken the decision to introduce an allowance to book Levels One and Two of our detailer syllabus back to back for those travelling longer distances to attend. Attendees will still need to complete the coursework and take the online exams for both levels in order to achieve our certification.

For more information on the syllabus of both courses, please read through the full course description below.

Note: Monday’s are the only start day available as this is a 5 day course. If you need to start on another day due to travel, and run over into the following week, please contact us to discuss.

Practical assessment takes place as part of the original training session, at the end of the course you will be assigned a (manageable) series of case studies and exercises to complete over the period of 3 months to cement the knowledge. There is then an externally assessed online exam, to ensure there are no weak areas and asses the candidates knowledge. After which the Level One and Two accreditation is awarded and you can either progress or choose to practice the skills gained with ongoing support.

We would again stress that, if able to attend both courses separately, candidates are likely to better retain the information delivered, however if logistics are a challenge, then this is the ideal course to get your detailing career started.
