When can I complete the MCQ exam?
On your Tipton Training course day you will be able to sit for your MCQ exam. Alternatively, you can do this online via BARD website.
What is the cost to sit the exam?
Registration (including first year’s membership of the BARD) costs just £250 and the Part 1 examination a further £275. However, the BARD has agreed with Tipton Training to only charge one set of Registration fees for the examination if you take the exam on your last course day. Therefore, the cost of the Registration will be divided between all Tipton Training delegates who sit the exam on the day – quite a substantial saving!
If you would prefer to sit the exam online the cost is £275 for the registration including the first year of membership to BARD and the Part 1 examination £275.
