RHS Level 2 Cert

turmericturmeric Posts: 825

Hello all, I wasn't really sure where to put this question so I've plumped for here.  I was just considering the RHS Level 2 Certificate and wondered what people's thoughts were about whether it was really worth it?  I'm just an enthusiastic, very interested amateur so not in need of a career booster.  I read alot but am aware there are gaps in my knowledge and I'd like to know (alot) more and feel more confident.  Who knows I might decide to take it further but at this stage it's simply for pleasure.  But looking online it would appear my local study centre charges £675 just for the course, plus £150 for the examsimage I did look at doing it online but that seems to cost around £400 plus the same exam fees so not a great saving. I had no idea it was so expensive.

Any thoughts anyone?

Many thanks.

    If it's just to enhance your hobby you may find that your local college runs courses. I don't mean like 10 weeks microwave cookery, but certificated courses. I know my local university did them.
