Courses are run by qualified nurses and experienced trainers

Courses are run by qualified nurses and experienced trainers, and all delegates receive a certificate of attendance and a delegate pack. Our courses are informative and packed with well researched content and include clips of real seizures. Delegates include carers, school escorts, post-graduate students as well as commercial organisations, GP surgeries and drug company representatives. We also work with the public sector, including health bodies, local councils, and schools.
