Certificate in Genealogical Research
Learn with us – Certificate course
We’ve been running a Certificate in Genealogical Research course since 2010. Designed to help members improve their research, analysis and writing skills, this course must be successfully completed before you can enrol in our Diploma in Family Historical Studies. The Certificate course is not designed to teach you how to undertake genealogical research; you are expected to already have a good working knowledge of family history and have been researching for a minimum of three years before applying.
The course runs for 18 months and successful candidates must complete 8 components of work in that time (assessments and an online examination). Entry is only open to financial members of the SAG which can be activated upon acceptance to the course. Good internet access is important as all work is distributed and submitted online.
The current course Regulations (as at 9 December 2015) are available in the link below.Certificate regulations
Applications for 2021 are closed with applications for the 2022 cohort expected to be open 1-28 February 2022.2021 Information brochure
