Open Courses

Open courses are held at a modern training venue in Redhill, Surrey, just 30 minutes from London.

Open courses are ideal:

  • For companies who want to send one or two members of staff for training, perhaps because the company already had a whole day of staff training and these staff members are new or maybe missed it.
  • For people taking responsibility for their own self-development and who enjoy improving their skills.
  • If you want to try a course before booking Iain to run an in-house training session for your company.

On this page you'll find the open courses I currently have planned. If you’re not sure if you’re ready I'd still suggest that you GRAB YOUR PLACE WHILE IT’S THERE.  I can’t guarantee that there will be same courses running in 6 months or a year’s time, you just never know, plus it's better value when you buy your place at the early bird discount.

Just 30 minutes from central London and served by the M25, M23 and A25, Redhill is the ideal location for your next training course

Further Details

How An Open Course Runs

Open courses start at 9.30am which gives everyone time to travel and arrive safely. We get straight down to the training and have lunch (included in the cost) around 12.30pm. We will also have two short breaks for tea and coffee in the morning and mid-afternoon. I'll wrap things up at 4.45pm.

I provide all of the training materials so you don't need to bring anything other than a pen and a smile. Sound good? 

Open Course Pricing Structure

I've already mentioned that there is a discounted price for booking early but I also offer a discount when you book more than one person on a course. The discounts are automatically applied during the checkout process (it's clever software!). This offer works in conjunction with the early bird discount which makes it even cheaper!

How To Book Your Place

When you've decided which course you'd like to go on simply click the big blue 'Book This Open Course' button in the course description and you'll be taken to the registration process. It's an easy process, just like booking a cinema ticket or buying something from Amazon.

  1. From the event page, click on the registration or buy tickets button.
  2. Select your tickets and head to Checkout.
  3. Enter your payment details and then click Buy Now.
  4. Your tickets will be delivered to your email address.

Venue and Travel

The training takes place in the modern training facilities at Three Central Ltd, 3 London Road, Redhill, RH1 1LY. Redhill railway station has excellent connections across the south east with frequent services from London Bridge, Victoria, Charing Cross, Brighton and Guildford. Our venue is a three minute walk from Redhill station.

If you're driving then Redhill is well served by the M25, the M23 and plenty of A roads running north to south and east to west. Click here to see the numerous parking options, all just a few minutes walk from the venue and costing about £6 for the day.

"Lots of practical ideas to use. Gave opportunity to reflect on what we do as teachers. Really enjoyable and informative session."
