There are 6 levels available from A1 (Absolute Beginners) to C2 (Advanced 2) and examinations take place in various venues around the country during the year.

Examinations are currently available at five levels from Absolute Beginners (A1) to Advanced 1 (C1). A further level, Advanced 2 (C2), is in the process of development.
