      You simply register with us online to create a training profile and begin promoting your services.

    3. How do I alter my training profile?

      Simply login to your member's area to alter any aspect of your training profile at any time.

    4. I understand clients can create feedback about me, how does this work?

      We understand that clients value feedback and that trainers benefit from positive referrals so we have built a feedback system enabling clients to give feedback quickly and easily. After you have been introduced to a client, we will email the client inviting them to give feedback, which you can then comment upon and publish if you choose.

    5. What qualifications do I need to register as a training provider?

      Our trainers cover a very broad spectrum of expertise and disciplines, so writing a prescriptive list is infeasible. We suggest the best way is to ask yourself which areas of true expertise you can offer based on your experience and qualifications and whether you will feel comfortable to have this knowledge probed by a professional audience and still remain credible.

    6. Do you employ trainers?

      No, all trainers work as self-employed freelancers, we do not employ any trainers.
