If I compete in the OLHA! Starter course and get promoted in the middle of the month, can I compete at First Level at the end of that month?
Yes! For example if you compete in the March/April Starter OLHA! competition and gain 12 or more points you are promoted to First Level so, if you feel ready, you can compete in the March First level competition for which entries close at the end of the month.
