Over-subscribed courses

A number of our training courses become fully booked very quickly and we appreciate how frustrating this can be. When courses are over-subscribed the training administrator will offer you either an alternative date if available or put your name on a waiting list. It is important that your name is on the waiting list as we regularly review these. If there is a large level of demand for a particular course we will try to arrange additional training dates, budgets permitting.
