Both three-hour workshops are held in a variety of locations across West Sussex and cost £35 plus VAT per delegate. They are taught by local regulatory officers, and provide you with the essential knowledge and materials to ensure compliance, including self-audit documentation.

If you would like the opportunity to address any areas of concern, in confidence and to network with other like-minded individuals, book online today.

Training at your business premises

We also provide tailored in-house courses starting at £700 plus VAT. Contact us for further information and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.
