Our lives as OT’s can get kind of crazy can’t it?

With work, life, friends, family and of course occupationally meaningful activities 😉 finding time to keep up to date and ‘help our future selves’ through connecting with professional development activities can be tricky….complicated all the more by serious FOMO!

We also know that the best intentions of doing all the training we sign up for, can just lead to a sense of pressure hanging over our heads.

So, to support you in preventing becoming a ‘course junkie’ our courses run at set times based on presenter availability. This means that there is often a wait list for some of our courses, and that they can fill up pretty quick.

When we were running courses live, our last course filled within 2 hours, leading us to expand to a different venue… with the expanded spots being snapped up within 4 hours.

So, this means, if you have a particular course you are interested in, and a date for the next course is not showing, pop your name down by clicking on the course, and we will let you know as soon as we do when that next course is running.

In the mean time, connecting in our face book community – we look forward to seeing you there!
