Once you have worked out the training requirements of your organisation you will need to arrange for training to be provided. Some training can be provided on your own premises but a lot of training will require you to attend a training centre for assessment in order to issue a certificate.
A Birmingham training centre might not be your first choice but if you have sites across the country it is definitely worth a second look.
