South Island training?

  • We are interested in running more training in the South Island and would like to gauge interest in us providing training in Christchurch in the second half of 2019. This would most likely be the September 'Introduction to DBT' or the November 'Skill Essentials training'. If you have an interest in a Christchurch event please contact us or reply to this email to let us know.
