Course Delivery - Classroom

We will deliver this course at your site for up to 20 delegates. Although the course structure is based on the information above, we will specialise in ensuring that our delivery is adapted to meet the needs and expectations of the delegates. We know that the needs of a group of serious crime detectives will be different to the experiences of a group of Environmental Health Officers or a mixed group of council enforcement officers. As a result, the delivery time will vary. We will not keep people back and drag out the training with too much detail, when it is not required. Equally, if delegates have questions or want to explore specific areas of the law or practice, our trainers will not be rushing for the door.  We anticipate that the training will take up to 7 hours, but once all of the areas have been covered,  your staff can get back to work!

We are currently working on our online delivery version of this course and when it is available all classroom delegates will receive free access to the online course for 3 months. 

What do our learners say:

Thanks for the training session, for me it was a refresher course but I felt like I had learnt new stuff from you which is good.  I totally agree with you and find it refreshing that a trainer cuts out the stories and padding and concentrates on the legislation and what it means in their posts. 

Thanks for a useful, concise course today. I really liked it and I thought you delivered something that could be boring and confusing in an interesting relevant way. 

Bespoke courses available on request.
