CAN I DO AN INITIATION COURSE AND RIGHT AFTER START A HIGHER LEVEL ONE?
Tranne quando specificato, il passaggio al corso successivo è subordinato al giudizio di idoneità ottenuto. Quindi la risposta è NO, o meglio: è possibile decidere di fermarsi a frequentare un livello superiore solo “sul posto”, se promossi alla fine del corso di livello inferiore. Dunque: se promossi all’iniziazione e se vi è la disponibilità di posto (non possiamo tenere un’opzione!) ci si può fermare e frequentare il corso successivo.
Except where it is noted, the transition to the next course is allowed only if you obtain the certificate. So the answer is NO.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WEEKLY COURSE, such as 1C, AND A WEEKEND COURSE OF THE SAME LEVEL, such 1SL? If you exceed the 1SL COURSE YOU CAN ALSO ACCESS THE PRECROCIERA COURSE?
The fundamental difference is that in six consecutive days and a half staff you can do more than in three weekends.
The weekend courses are intended to keep in practice, consolidate lessons learned and to prepare for the next course.
Nevertheless, the most promising students will be allowed to attend the higher level, according to the captain.
