Training and CPD modules

RaPAL are involved in developing training and CPD underpinned by research for which there is interest and demand in the field. These may take root from workshops delivered at our conferences. Recently, we are involved in developing CPD modules with NIACE. We also offer online delivery via platforms such as WebEx.
