I registered with Learning Curve, now Borders Connect to do the level 2 principles.
My experience was of irrelevant assignments and notes, lack of communication from my tutor and general rubbishness. So I'm afraid I wouldn't recommend them. I ended up printing the learning outcomes off from the RHS website and teaching myself from textbooks. If you are confident to do it this way (there are some excellent textbooks written specifically for the course) then you would just have to pay the examination fees as an external candiate at your local exam centre.
If I go on to do level 3, this is how I would do it.
