Our face-to-face sessions are a full day of training with practical demonstrations and discussions. Will also count as CPD for the APC.

Our face to face training sessions are currently suspended. Please check back for events.

Receive your induction training from the comfort of your own home or centre by booking on one of our free video calls. Your video call will give you the opportunity to go through the process in more detail and ask any queries you may have. The session lasts approximately one hour and 15 minutes.
