Online Team and Business Training

*Please see our main training page for an update on our response to concerns around COVID-19.

As of April, 2020, we are continuing to provide online training for organisations. We will provide further updates regarding any changes.

Many employees are currently working from home as part of government and organisational requests to self-isolate. As a result, some team members may have a greater opportunity to spend time upskilling. We are now offering our in-house and public training courses as online training options, provided in easy to manage modules over multiple sessions to assist those who work from home.

Please contact us to discuss how our online training options can benefit your organisation.
