How long is the course?

There are two parts to Cytech technical one, both need to be completed to receive the full technical one qualification.

Theory one can be completed as a distance learning course from the comfort of your own home and you will receive a Cytech technical one Theory certificate when you pass.

Technical one practical can be completed with any of the Cytech training providers and takes two days, a Cytech technical one practical certificate will be issued when you pass.
