Safety Information

In order to maintain the safety of our customers and employees, and in accordance with the current COVID-19 guidance outlined by the UK government, TechDesign Software Training has been moved online for the time being. 

The training will take place via Microsoft Teams, and will still be held over a two day period and requires the same commitment from all attendees. 

Training participants will be provided with the software and license where required, and therefore must have a suitable Desktop or Laptop computer to operate the TechDesign software. 

Booking can still be carried out using the online form below and the dates will remain the same. This will offer more opportunities to book for those where travel and location was an issue. It may also be possible to introduce additional dates should demand require them. 

Places are limited to 3 participants from each company for each training session, but customers can book more participants on to additional dates. Please speak to your Account Manager if you have any questions.
