Off Site Training
If you require training in your own workshop using your own equipment we can arrange this to suit your needs. In this case please contact Richard by telephone to discuss your precise requirements and to agree mutually convenient dates. The cost for this service is shown below.
Courses are available throughout the year but must be booked in advance. Please telephone Richard to check availability. A 40% deposit is required to secure your booking. Your deposit is payable at the time of booking either by card payment or by cheque with the balance payable either by card payment or cash on the first morning of your course.
Courses are normally run on any day(s) from Monday to Saturday but if a Sunday course is required we will do our best to arrange this. However, please note that on Sundays the local availability of hot and cold refreshments at lunchtime is limited!
