Training Options

We can offer our qualifications and training courses in-house too. Bringing staff together is also a great way of getting them to learn, since they encourage one another, develop together and learn new things about each other.

You may find in-house training or qualifications an attractive option, if you have 5 or more people in your organisation interested in attending any of our courses, or undertaking any of our qualifications. We can design training and development programmes to match your requirements or we can adapt any of our existing courses and qualifications programmes to suit you.

All of our courses, qualifications and workshops can be delivered exclusively to your organisation, or to a group of organisations, and at a date and location convenient to you.

Whatever your learning and development needs, CIH has the answer.

Call 048 90778222 or email to discuss your options.
