The online ROLO courses are proving to be a hit, though it is always important to ensure good internet connection! We would not say that remote learning is our favourite means of training, but our trainer works hard to keep everybody involved and enthusiastic. We are now able to run the course over one day instead of two half days. The next date with spaces is:-

  • 10th October (Lenham) - 4 spaces

  • 31st October (Online) - 7 spaces

Here’s what some of our participants had to say;

'I would just like to add that the course coordinator facilitated in making this task rather enjoyable and applicable to each participant, not an easy task, especially on a zoom call. Thank You’

‘I found the trainer very engaging and the course content was useful’

‘The course was well structured and engaging. The trainer did a great job of making it interesting and highlighting important areas’

The online course is a great option for someone who is working from home, or who feels uncomfortable presently in a classroom environment. Candidates need to register with ROLO Online (we send you the link), then are enrolled on a specific course.

The test is completed at the end of the course. Candidates will need a quiet space and access to a PC/laptop and a stable internet connection for the duration. Cost is £140 + VAT

The rest of the year looks as follows:-​​

  • October 7th (FULL), 10th (Lenham) & 31st (online)

  • November 14th (online), 25th (Lenham) & 29th (online)

  • December 12th (Lenham)
