Training Courses & Events

Fixed courses

As a result of the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic we are having to amend our charging policy. There will be an automatic charge of £35.00 plus VAT on all in person course bookings where the participant is unable to attend. This is because venue providers are seeking payment in full prior to the course operating. In the event that Plumsun cancels the course no charge will be made.

We now offer some of our courses online via Zoom, please keep an eye out below for courses with the Online Zoom Training icon.
