In an effort to expand the number of courses we offer, increase the convenience of courses for all Districts, and increase training opportunities for you and your staff, we have invited our usual trainers to propose training days which can be presented locally.
The road shows represent a range of training days at a specified cost. It is for the District to organise a venue, refreshments, set a date and advertise the course locally, then split the overall costs between delegates.
Please see the links below for details of the road shows on offer.
If you wish to hold a road show training day please contact Maxine Rai.
