Giving up an entire Saturday can be hard! That is why we have decided to break up this INVALUABLE training in to two evening sessions!
Join us from 6-9 (ish) on Monday March 16, and Monday March 23 where we will cover all the same course content in bite size evenings, leaving your prescious weekends for weekend things!
