Maximum 4 places per organisation: Each organisation can book a maximum of 4 places on each training course - this is to ensure that a variety of organisations are able to secure places.


Contact details: Please fill in accurate email addresses and telephone numbers for attendees. If we need to postpone the training due to bad weather or trainer illness then we need to get hold of attendees to let them know - and this may be outside of office hours.


Cancellations: Please let us know at least one week before the training if someone cannot attend - there is a lot of demand for this training and late cancellations last year led to places being wasted. You may be charged if you do not give us one week’s notice of the cancellation.
