Thank you for your course/exam booking with AEC.

Please note, from Monday 4th April 2022 we will now require BOHS Candidate Information Forms to be sent to us to process your exam booking with BOHS, this form must be completed and returned to training@aec.uk.net within 48 hours of making the booking, without this form, we cannot order an exam paper for you.

The reason for the above is because BOHS will now be using an online exam software provider, Eva, to provide the function to generate online and paper exams.
