Courses available

From May 2021 we will be able to offer a full range of training courses.

We are required to continue to follow legislation to keep our staff and delegates safe, and need to maintain reduced numbers on courses, improved ventilation, Track and Trace and PPE when required.

Some courses have now moved to Online delivery , using Microsoft Teams- we are continuing to use our well-established trainers and are confident that this method will provide convenient streamlined learning.

We value you as a learner and will update our pages as changes occur.
