RHS Level 3 Certificate Courses
Due to the revision of the RHS Qualifications, the planned RHS launch of the updated Level 3 course in September 2023 and the current course completion deadline, RBGE will no longer be offering the existing theory qualification to new learners.
If you have not already started studying for an RHS Level 3 Qualification, you should hold off and begin the updated qualification when it launches in September 2023.
The future of RHS Level 3 at RBGE
RBGE has no immediate plans to run the revised RHS Level 3 course when it launches in September 2023. If this changes we will of course let you know, however it may be some time before this qualification is part of our offer.

Sitting the Exams Online
For students unable to find a space at a local centre or those based outside of the UK, the RHS have introduced online exams.
Students should register directly with the RHS: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be aware that you will be asked to undertake a very short demo exam in the location and on the computer you intend to use for the exam. This is so that the RHS can ensure that your system is set up correctly and that any issues are sorted out well before the exams in June. Please be assured that your responses in the demo exam do not count in any way towards your qualification.
The RHS will not accept registration for online exams after the 9th May 2022, however you are advised to contact them sooner rather than later to allow time for the system set-up and demo exam test to take place before the exams.
RBGE will not be involved in the registration or management of the online exams and have very little information about the running of them. Any questions regarding online exams should be directed to the RHS.
