    • Agreeing pre-course and post-course work
    • Tailoring exercises and the course manual to suit your requirements


    For further details on how Catalyst can tailor your course see Tailored Courses.


    The course uses role-plays, case studies and video.  Use may also be made of CCTV.  The practical nature of the training enables delegates to apply the theory underpinning the course to typical workplace situations.
