Course format

Due to COVID-19 we are currently offering this as an online course. We recognise that the online version of our training will not include some of the live exercises from our face to face course. We are therefore reducing the price, for this online course only. We will then return to face to face training when permitted. The new online format consists of:

1. Two learning modules covering how to use the rating tool and available to view in your own time ahead of the live session. 

2. An interactive live session where you will have the opportunity to ask your questions and learn from industry experts.
