A note about attending a 'Virtual' training session

This course will be run on the Zoom video conferencing platform.

If you've never used Zoom - or any other video conferencing platform - before don't worry, it's quite straightforward!

Before the session, we'll send you instructions to help you get started. The key thing is to ensure that your video and audio settings are working, which you can test before the session.

All you'll need is a laptop/PC with audio and video capability, a good internet connection and somewhere quiet to sit and share a 'virtual learning space' with us.
