Which courses should I attend?

New members are advised to contact their Committee Manager for advice on what training is needed. UK convenors are directed to our advisory service: see page 3 of our brochure, which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

When is the next course taking place?

Each course has its own page on this site and you will find the dates listed there. Once all the seats on a session are taken, the date will be marked “Fully subscribed”. New dates are added to the website at intervals.
