Training courses

Introduction
The course can be done either as a presentation in a room or as an online webcast-using zoom. When done as a presentation the course will be one session lasting three and a half hours, with a tea break half way through. When done as a webcast the course will be divided up into three sessions each less than an hour’s duration. Class sizes are usually limited to 20 people. After completion of the course a CPD certificate will be issued. There is a booklet to go with this course containing comprehensive notes. You will be sent a copy of this booklet before the course begins. You will need to have a printed copy of this in front of you during the sessions.

How do I pay you?
Contact me to find out how to pay. You can use the contact details page. For webcasts I will send you a link along with a password, when you have paid.

How do I connect to the webcast?

You will need to view the webcast on a device with a screen larger than a mobile phone, such as a tablet, laptop or desktop computer. You will either need to download the zoom app or download 'zoom for client meetings' from this link:
Download zoom

After downloading it try it out to see how it works. For the best sound quality you need to use either earplugs or headphones and use it in a quiet room without background noise. Below are two videos showing you how zoom works.
