I entered for new RO exams last week. Guess what? No slots available in Birmingham for the next three months (I live in Wolverhampton). No entry slots whatsoever. None. Zilch. I beg your pardon? None? None?
We are told: “Due to unforeseen demand, we have had the Birmingham Centre fully booked for the foreseeable future. Your best bet is to go online every day to see if there will be any additions.”
Unforeseen demand? What? Did they not foresee RDR deadlines, level 4 and the glut, nay, tsunami of people wanting to attain their must-have qualifi-cations to continue in this industry? I was rendered speechless. I could not even muster the words to complain.
What are they doing to help the industry? Working to get more slots available? Looking for alternative centres? No. Giving directions to Bristol, Manchester or London, All well over two hours’ journey time for me. Bravo.
I am not an adviser. I do not have a company car. I do not even have expenses. But I do want to attain chartered status as soon as possible because I want to better myself and this is not helping.
