The course can be presented to companies for the benefit of their staff. Because of the required Skills Based content of the course, information presented is tailor made for the company for which the course is being presented.

Each delegate will be handed a full and comprehensive set of reference notes. The study material is copyrighted to PBS College.

The venue, which should preferably be away from the normal working environment of the delegates attending the course;
Tea/coffee, refreshments and lunches (if required);
