CDI Courses - Response to Corona Virus outbreak

We have introduced new virtual learning  courses in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.  These provide the same high quality of training and support that is offered with our face to face training which we are continuing to offer.  

We realise that the corona virus outbreak is causing much concern and we are monitoring developments closely and following advice from Public Health England. We are proceeding with our face to face learning programmes advertised below, subject to getting the minimum number of candidates required for the courses to be viable to run.   Should there be further lockdowns locally or nationally we will offer those learners on face to face training the option of delaying parts of the training affected or changing to virtual delivery.  Our aim is to minimise any disruption to learning and ensure you have a positive and enjoyable experience of training with the CDI.  Our highly experienced trainers and assessors will support you every step of the way.

We will continue to provide updates as new information is available but if you have any questions regarding future courses in the meantime please contact marion.edwards@thecdi.net
