Fees and Discounts

Find out what our fees include and the discounts we offer.

For specific course fees see our training course factsheets or contact us to discuss the cost of tailor-made training, which can be a more cost effective to train a large group. If you do not have funding you could approach organisations who may be able to help, see our funding opportunities. Unfortunately we are not able to sponsor participants.
