Public training

Ideal for smaller practices, or companies with smaller training requirements. 


Trainer-led sessions - accessible to all

For smaller companies or practices with a smaller training requirement, NBS offer public training as an option. The training follows the same format as the online trainer-led sessions, with an NBS trainer delivering a live session online,  but with members of other practices all joining the same course. As these sessions are open to multiple organisations at once, they represent excellent value for customers with smaller numbers of staff. 

We offer a wide range of public 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.

1

Upskill

Increase your product knowledge to get the maximum out of your platform, and make creating, editing and managing your specification like second nature.

2

Increase efficiency

Our trainers will show you the features that help you make the best use of your time, meaning you can spend less time on admin, and increase your billable hours elsewhere.

3

Double CPD points

All our training courses are approved by the RIBA CPD Providers Network, meaning RIBA members can claim double points on your learning – helping towards that annual learning target.
