Course Programme

This year it has been decided to deliver our training mainly in response to specific requests from groups/organisations.

These groups will then be encouraged to make the training "open" and available to "individuals" who may want to access a specific course. Course fees for 2017 are listed below for your information.

Courses which are open to individuals in Scotland in 2017 will be listed below.
