How does it work?
Training will be delivered via Zoom and you will be sent joining instructions prior to the training, which will detail how to join and how the session will work.
At the end of the session you will be asked to complete online feedback and e-certificates will be issued upon successful completion of the course.
The cost of the course includes a copy of the manual and workbook. You will need to provide a postal address for these to be sent to.
Please note that it is not critical for you to have the manual for use during the online session. If you do not receive your copy before the session you can still proceed, as you will be provided with an e-workbook and resources.
