We just chose a date and a venue and they turned up and delivered an excellent quality course for a fraction of the cost of our previous providers.

As a guide, the costs below normally apply to our on site training service where we visit your premises and deliver a course for a single block booking cost. The costs for these group bookings are shown below and will override any other individual costs that may be shown on the website.

If you have not got exactly 12 candidates do not fear. Please contact us as we can still negotiate a discount off of our individual "per head" cost for your efforts. If, on the other hand, you have a larger group than 12, or have a regular requirement, please get in touch so that we can give our very best tailored price to suit your needs.
