The amateur radio Intermediate licence came into effect over a decade ago and was until recently known as the Novice Licence. This type of Licence is the “Second rung of the ladder” in a new three tier system of licensing allowing access to the amateur radio hobby in the UK. It is important to state that as of December 2003 Direct entry to the Intermediate Licence will not be possible and successful completion of all required assessments and exams at the Foundation level will be required before being able to take the Intermediate exam.


The training courses and examinations required for the Intermediate Licence are co-ordinated by the RSGB (Radio Society of Great Britain) by arrangement with ofcom (Previously the Radio Communications Agency) Ofcom is the government body responsible for the regulation of the radio spectrum in the UK.

The length of the course is approximately 30 Hours and is aimed at providing the candidate with the necessary basic skills required to be a safe competent radio operator. The degree of technical content has been moved up a stage from that of the Foundation Licence and once successful the candidate should posses the necessary practical skills and theoretical knowledge in order to undertake basic construction projects unsupervised. As with the Foundation Licence a number of practical assessments have to be completed during the course before the final multi choice exam paper can be sat, the assessments are of an a more technical nature and will make use of some constructional equipment and some basic electrical components, one assessment takes the form of a student construction project which is assessed. The assessments continue in an informal vein and any conscientious student who has paid attention to the course content should have no difficulty.


The exam will take place at the end of the course in the form of a 75 minute 45 question muti-choice assessment paper.
