With plenty of practical content, this course develops basic skills in farriery and related subjects. It's designed to prepare you for an apprenticeship in the farriery industry, or for beginning a career as a blacksmith.
Over the 16 weeks you'll make a portfolio of pieces. This will include all the mandatory test pieces from the Qualification Handbook, and will be examined at the end of the course by an external examiner.
You'll also take a practical exam in which you'll produce two test pieces from the current Qualification Handbook, and a single multiple choice test via the E-volve system.
