We continue to offer clients something different to help with training staff or just reminding staff of the practical steps to take and why they are taking them to meet the compliance standard.
As in 2021, we will be offering bite-sized early morning live training sessions. Each session will be around 20-30 minutes depending on the interaction of those participating. We will be sending out the GoToMeeting joining details one week in advance of each session.
In 2022, six live sessions will be available free of charge to ALL current clients at the date of the training session. Each session will be recorded and the recording will be available for webinar clients only. All our other sessions will only be available to webinar clients.
We are always open to suggestions and ways to improve our services so please feel free to put forward suggestions about future bite-sized training sessions or give feedback so that we may improve the sessions.
Details of our annual subscriptions and other services are available here.
