On-site training

Get the most out of your session with hands-on, team training sessions at your office or workplace*.

Training - at your office or workplace

With the NBS Academy, we are able to deliver hands-on training for a more personal learning experience. Choosing on-site training means a qualified NBS trainer will travel to deliver your chosen training course at an office or venue of your choice. With training delivered in this way, it gives you the ability to focus on the individual training needs of your business*, and use examples and scenarios appropriate to your practice. 

We offer a wide range of on-site training courses, and new sessions are added as additional functionality is added to the platform. Each course counts towards your CPD requirements meaning you could increase your skillset, improve your efficiency, spend more time on billable hours and contribute to your required learning target all at the same time. To book a course, fill out the form below and one of the team will be in touch.
