RAD Examinations and Awards will be via Video Submission up until Winter 2022, from Spring 2023 they will take place at an RAD Approved Venue.

Glenn Wood Examinations are filmed and then submitted to the GWTS Head Office in Australia.

iD Contemporary Examinations are taken in person at the studio, Ryan Jenkins or a representative will attend our studio in-person to examine the students.
