Continuing Professional Development (CPD) - our range of CPD activities complement our training courses and allows attendees to maintain and enhance their knowledge and skills related to their professional roles.

We are based in beautiful surroundings on the University of Reading campus and offer comfortable, purpose built training facilities in order to maximise the delegate learning experience. Contracted industry renowned subject matter experts deliver our training courses to the high standard we expect for our clients. We team interactive, workshop based learning methods with short tutor led presentations so that, no matter what your learning style, you will end the course with not only an understanding of the subject, but also the ability to put theory into practice. Some of the benefits of having our own training facilities are:

  • Ample on-site parking
  • Secure access with lockable storage areas
  • Disabled access and facilities
  • Separate refreshment areas
  • Outside benches for use during warmer months

We offer delegates the opportunity of tours of our analytical facilities and meetings with RSSL colleagues when attending our training courses.

We offer three simple approaches:

'Off the shelf'
If one of our standard 'open' courses is what you are looking for then give us a call and simply tell us which one you would like, when, where and for how many!  We will ask a few simple questions just to make sure that the training will meet your objectives.

If one of our courses looks interesting, why not take the opportunity to have it tailored to suit your specific requirements - taking account of internal systems, procedures and policies.  We will discuss the learning outcomes you want to achieve, and then tailor the course to meet them, using your own examples in exercises.

With an extensive network of highly skilled subject matter experts, we can develop a programme from scratch even if you don't see what you are looking for on our website.  If you are unsure of exactly how to achieve the results you need, one of our Training Consultants will work with  you to design the right solution - anything from a single event to a full programme for courses and workshops - but always to deliver the outcome you require.  We will arrange a discussion with you and then make a recommendation in a proposal for your consideration.

We operate a seasonal pricing structure for our in-house courses, contact us today for more information. Whatever your requirement, please give us a call - with no obligation we will show you how we can help or take a look at our in house training flyer.

The benefits:

  • Cost efficient - saving you money by training a number of staff at the same time
  • Deliver a consistent message which 'lands' with everyone who attends
  • No costly travel or accommodation
  • No waste - pay only for the level of content you need
  • Make the training 'real' by relating to your own company situations
