Online Training

The RFS is delighted to offer an expanded programme of online training courses in 2021.  These are typically one or two online modules and are a lively mix of tutor presentations and interactive Q & A sessions.  As with our one-day training courses, we limit delegate numbers to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to engage and ask the tutor questions directly.
