While we continue to offer online training, we have now reopened our classrooms in our Haddenham and Southampton offices to resume in person training.

How are we making it safe?

The wellbeing of our staff and visitors is paramount, therefore in accordance with UK government guidelines we have tailored our training environment to ensure that delegates will work a safe distance from each other. We have installed commercial hand sanitising stations and introduced a number of rules and systems for moving around the premises whilst maintaining social distancing. For details see our COVID-19 risk mitigation information.

Delegates should not travel to any courses if feeling unwell and reschedule to another date.
