Your Place or Mine?
Scheduled courses are normally held at the BRS Conference Centre in Newmarket, Suffolk, but we can also bring our training to your site. We have delivered autism training courses across the UK and Ireland as well as Spain, Malta and the US. If you have a number of people in need of training, a course in your own area may prove to be an economic option as well as enabling customisation of content to meet your particular needs.
