A. It depends. The day rate for on-site training is a single cost for up to eight delegates. For our public courses, we charge on a per delegate basis.

Q. What will be required of me during a training course?

A. You will get the most out of our training courses if you come prepared to participate actively in learning new skills. Be prepared to ask questions and be asked questions by your tutor in turn.

Q. How will you ensure that I'll remember what I've learnt?

A. For online courses, which we have offered since 2020, we send a recording of the session for you to keep, meaning you can watch it again as often as you wish to reinforce learning. After your training, you can phone or email us a question and we'll be more than happy to answer it for you.

Q. Will I be able to practice my new skills before I leave the training course?

A. Yes. All our courses have ample hands-on sessions, structured exercises and workshops as part of the learning process.

Q. Will I have to bring anything to the training course?

A. Only your thinking cap! We supply pads, pens and laminated Quick Reference Guides. For our online courses all you need is a reliable internet connection and the ability to video call via Zoom.
