Gain a Professional Qualification

I can offer you my Delving Deeper two-year course that prepares you for the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies (IHGS) Higher Certificate in Genealogy examination. The course consists of 23 monthly modules with a workshop held between each module to discuss specific issues, progress and to conduct practical tasks. The next course starts on Monday the 16th April, 2018, and sessions are held between 11.15am - 1.15pm, at the Petersfield Community Centre, Petersfield, Hampshire, GU31 4BW. 

Students who successfully attain the IHGS Higher Certificate can then progress to the IHGS Diploma in Genealogy, DipGen, which is a nationally recognised professional qualification. I can offer my Exploring the Archives mentoring package, comprising formal sessions, workshops and three archive visits, that will prepare you for the THREE tasks that comprise the IHGS Diploma in Genealogy.   The 2018 course will start on the 18th September.
