Live Webinars


We are delighted to announce the launch of our new regular live webinar service!

What are live webinars?

Webinars are short courses, normally of approximately 1 hour duration, which are "broadcast" over the internet. Because they are delivered in real time, attendees have the ability to "chat" with the presenter, asking questions to clarify any issues as they arise.

How do they work?

The webinars are scheduled in advance and attendees register to attend. Once registered, attendees are sent joining instructions for the webinar. After the webinar all attendees are sent a CPD certificate.

What topics are included?

Current scheduled webinars include:
