How do the courses work?
To check the status of your points, please check with NRoSO or BASIS, or head to MY PROFILE to see if your existing points are still active or expired. They expire and are removed from your EiO account after exactly 12 months. Sadly, due to a change in the management of the NRoSO scheme, we are no longer able to offer a free two-point course to members.
