If you prefer, one of our trainers will travel to your workplace to deliver in-person training. We will send the right trainer based on their relevant qualifications and professional experience. Once you have booked your training, your own account manager will be in touch to take care of the arrangements.
Our workplace courses can take place as in-person, classroom training. However, we also offer webinar training and eLearning. These are excellent options for educating your staff at a lower price, without the need to travel to a specified location. Our webinars are led by one of our trainers via videocall. eLearning is equipped with voiceovers and interactive activities and available for learners to complete in their own time.
