Events & Professional Training

Cluster of computers

We are strongly committed to our role as one of the key providers of health protection training. Our training programmes, based on the expertise of our staff, prepare and support individuals and organisations involved in protecting people from  infectious disease, chemical, poison or radiation hazards, and from new and emerging threats, including new strains of disease or bioterrorist attack.

We offer a wide variety of education and training opportunities at local, national, and international level.  Many masters degrees and professional organisation training systems are supported by staff members who also organise secondment opportunities.
