A place on any course can't be guaranteed, but please note the course date/s in your diary and submit your application as soon as possible.

Places on courses will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Confirmation of places on training courses will be sent to applicants 3 weeks before the course date. Please contact the relevant training team if you haven't heard anything 2 weeks prior to the course date.

It is good practice to keep your own training team notified of applications you make direct to other authorities. This enables them to keep an accurate record of your training.

Cancellations should be made no later than 5 working days before the course date.

If you don't attend the course, without good reason, your organisation will be charged the full cost of providing the training place.

In some cases this may be in excess of the agreed charge for the course.
