At the booking stage, no financial commitment is made. There will need to be a discussion with the allocated lead trainer with regard to any travel, accommodation or subsistence costs. These should be agreed before the initial visit, where with senior leadership and management, course content is discussed, training venue risk assessed and advice on paperwork underpinning practice provided if appropriate.
