Where is this training delivered?

All of our courses are currently delivered onsite at your premises. From your perspective this simply means setting aside a room able to comfortably handle the group size. The only other requirements are that there is a flip chart with plenty of paper and pens. And finally a projection device or TV to plug a laptop into.

Where in the world can this be delivered?

We have delivered this internationally.

What are the timings of the course?

Unless otherwise discussed, the events start at 9.30 am and finish between 4.30 and 5.00 pm.

What is given out as course material?

Each delegate gets courseware comprising a booklet which has a copy of all of the PowerPoint slides as well handouts and quizzes on the day.

What is the optimum size of the class?

We normally say that the class sizes should range from a minimum of 4 attendees to a maximum of 12. This can be adjusted on occasions.

Do the attendees need to prepare or research anything before the event?

No, unless otherwise advised. They simply need to turn up with a pen, fresh and ready to receive tonnes of knowledge on both days.
