Practice notes and training sessions are not legal advice, and do not necessarily provide a defence to complaints of misconduct or poor service. While we have taken care to ensure that they are accurate, up to date and useful, we will not accept any legal liability in relation to them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Face-to-Face

Individuals have the opportunity to connect with, problem-solve, and network with others from a wide range of backgrounds that online environments usually can’t replicate. Direct interaction with the trainer is also beneficial. You may also feel more comfortable and learn more easily in a familiar, traditional classroom situation.

Face-to-Face – the Cons

It’s expensive and time consuming. Online training can be recorded and viewed over and over again, whereas face-to-face training is delivered and the learner is left to rely on their memory and notes. A classroom setting can also stifle learning by allowing dominant personalities to take the bulk of the discussion environments. Quieter individuals become limited in their communication options for exchanging ideas and information.

Depending on your subscription and the length of the workshop, the pricing is as follows:
