Virtual Training Programmes

CIWM's new virtual training programmes provide a highly effective and convenient way to expand your knowledge, develop new skills, and achieve recognised certificates.

Our expert tutors have been trained in how to deliver first-class virtual programmes, blended to include a range of media and activities, some of which can be completed at your leisure around your day-to-day commitments. 

They'll guide you through a series of 1- or 2-hour live modules to help you progress through the programme and apply and embed your learning. You'll have opportunities to pose questions to the tutors, interact with other attendees, and there will be someone there to support you every step of the way.

Like our classroom-based training, our virtual programmes have been carefully designed to ensure the highest possible quality of learning.

Our virtual training programmes are:

  • Specifically designed for digital delivery
  • Easily accessible from a PC or tablet
  • Engaging and interactive
  • Accredited by CIWM
  • A recognised source of CPD

Through clever course curation and the use of video conferencing software, you'll have access to first-class training wherever you are, with minimal disruption to your working day.
