It's Time to Welcome you Back

Our Training Centres are now open again with a limited schedule of in-centre training courses and we look forward to welcoming you all back.

Following a detailed COVID-19 Risk Assessment, we have reconfigured our Training Centre and put in place new protocols to ensure the safety of our students, exam candidates and our staff, while ensuring the quality of training and support you have come to expect from us.  Prior to re-opening, the  Training Centre was subject to a deep clean using antiseptic, antibacterial cleaning products. This process was carried out over the course of a week and involved every part of the Training centre including shared entrance areas.

The classrooms and delegate rest areas have been reconfigured to enable effective Social Distancing. This has involved not only reducing classroom sizes considerably but also capping the total number of people coming into the Training Centre at any one time.  We have put hand sanitiser stations at key points in the Centre including at the front entrance to the building, at reception and in the delegates rest area. On-going antibacterial cleaning will be carried out during the day with particular focus on high-touch areas.

We have installed safety and information signage throughout the Centre.  We ask that you wear face masks when entering and moving around the centre but these can be removed when sat at your training desk.

We hope you are as excited as we are about being back but if you have any queries regarding coming in to the Centre, please contact our Training Support Team at
