Practical Provider

Gem-A Approved Practical Provider (GAPP) centres allow our Online Distance Learning (ODL) students to study the practical lab class component of their course outside of London. Some Accredited Training Centres (ATC's) also act as GAPP centres and offer this practical tuition separately from their other courses. Please contact the relevant ATC in your area to see what courses they have available.
