HEALTH ALERT – COVID 19 (CORONA VIRUS)

All of our courses are now being adapted and rewritten to be delivered partially online. All of the knowledge components will be delivered via a mix of self paced online lectures and videos, and live online workshops. Only the skills based competency assessments will occur face to face (restrictions permitting). We will also open up our 2021 calendar as soon as possible!

Stay up-to-date. Join our mailing list for all the latest news, updates and course information.
