However, the course is weighted 70/30 in favour of the theory component of the course. Students will be required to sit both theory and practical exams. For this reason, physical prowess alone will not be sufficient to be successful in this course.

Practical modules selected for each class will be dependent upon the specific expertise of the teacher and resources and facilities available to the class.
