Well the east coast had its FITS exam yesterday. As usual what you organise on paper and how you think the exam will run in regards to time etc.......doesnt. It was a long day and both Examiners - Robbie Miller and Steve Riggs done a fantastic job all day. The day started with Shoeboards and the oral. All a little nerve wracking to sit in front of 2 examiners who know their stuff, and try to answer, explain, detail and not forget your train of thought. Its certainly one aspect of the exam that takes it toll on the candidates.
Our Exams in Australia have started today with a clinic conducted by South African FITS examiner Robbie Miller, the clinic went down well with most of the guys losing their shyness and starting to ask questions and want to participate by half way thru.The theory portion was completed by candidates tonight.Tomorrow sees candidates offer their shoe board and complete their oral.
This is a reminder that we will be hosting the 2016 FITS South Africa Examinations at Pondorosa Farm, Neslpruit, Mpumulanga from the 5th through to the 7th August 2016. This will be a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable knowledge for both candidates and spectators alike. Please mark these dates in your diaries. Please can all candidates register online urgently and ensure that your payment of 60% deposit is paid by the 7th June 2016 and the balance is paid by the 7th July 2016.
