In light of Covid-19 most of our face to face training has been suspended. In the meantime we will be providing regular webinars via Microsoft Teams. With the exception of the Cocaine and Crack Use webinar, these are free to attend if you work in a relevant service in NI, and provided on behalf of the Public Health Agency.
They do not replace the need for full day training when it resumes but will provide some relevant, specialist support and information to those who work in a range of sectors such as:
All webinars are now extended to two hours.
