Please note that this course needs a minimum of 6 delegates to schedule
a course. You can choose to be added to the waiting list by clicking the

interested. Should we not get enough delegates, we will refund or credit
your paid booking.
Should you need this course urgently, the following options are
Pay for 6 delegates (whether you have them or not) and we will
schedule the course as soon as possible.
If you have fewer delegates and cannot pay for 6, we can negotiate
a shortened course where some of the time will be spent in blended
learning - watching videos and doing tutorials and exercises with
some contact time with the trainer. We would want to discuss what
your core needs are so that we cover those aspects. You need to have
paid for 3 delegates at least.
