Other providers may try to offer you their version of our Train the Trainer course, however, their course will not

  • be accredited
  • be approved by the manufacturers
  • contain up to date information on the new guideline changes, new products available, or future updates.  

Because we have direct contact with the manufacturers, we can provide this additional information.  Most of the other providers that do offer this training have attended our Train the Trainer and now re-sell it.  Unfortunately, this means that we do not update them and have to carefully select trainers that want to attend our course.

FUTURE COURSE DATES

Our in-house epilepsy training courses are available for groups of 4 to 12 delegates and can be held on your business’ premises anywhere in the United Kingdom. We also offer individual courses at select open venues across the UK, for which places must be booked in advanced. Please contact the team for more information.
