Corona Virus Update 2021
On line Training
Since September 2020 we have invested in new Zoom Training technologies and have developed a new “inspiration Studio” So the great news is we can now deliver all our previous portfolio of courses with a wider range of prices and options than ever before.
We are however, no longer deliver training and special events on Microsoft Teams as we have found it unreliable and many participants experienced problems with joining.
We know some institutions are worried about Zoom but we use the Professional Version which as safe as any technology can be at this moment in time, we ask all our potential delegates to access Zoom by signing up for the free Account to link you into our programmes.
Thomas Pocklington Lighting Courses
The lighting courses * by their nature still require to be delivered Face to Face and we will be delivering them again with an updated Ready Reckoner and LED Lighting technologies update in Autumn of 2021.
Thank you for your patience at this time and stay safe out there.
