Change of dates




All Open Programmes run in Skellingthorpe or the surrounding area (depending upon numbers).  

Many courses are run from my home office which enables the training to go ahead with small numbers. I don't like to disappoint my customers, so if I can get a minimum of two/three people for a day I will go ahead. 

Please see picture below to see what the home/office venue looks like: 

Alternatively, why not arrange an in-house course and I can come to you? You will find my prices very competitive. See Prices for more information
