Patoss offers a wide range of Training Opportunities
Patoss runs a range of training courses every year as well as an annual conference with an important keynote speaker and a mix of practical workshops to help you update your skills. The courses are offered in London and the regions and provide SASC-approved CPD for renewal of your APC at a reduced rate for members.
Our mentoring scheme provides a mechanism to develop professional practice, based around report writing skills. Fundamental to each opportunity is access to a Professional Practice Mentor, who will guide the Patoss member towards their professional goals. All three mentoring schemes are SASC authorised for CPD purposes. Included in each of the mentoring schemes is one year's membership of the Professional Practice Community Forum.
All our events can be booked online.
For full details of upcoming training and on-line booking information go to our CPD-Events page.
