Have a question about an LABC training course? Try these:
CPD (Continuous Professional Development) is a way to maintain essential professional knowledge and skills through a structured approach to learning.
LABC will provide CPD certificates for all training courses and conferences.
All full-day courses count as six CPD hours and all half-day courses count as three hours.
You'll receive an email shortly after we receive your online booking.
Approximately one week before the course you'll receive joining instructions confirming your place on the course.
Check your spam folder if you don't receive either of these, and if that doesn't help, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are the ways you can pay for your place on the course:
- Credit card
- Pre-Pay (only available to LABC members)
The flexible LABC training 'Pre-Pay' system allows you to pay in advance for training as a way to secure training during subsequent months or years. This is offered in response to member demands to support the long term planning of training and to manage activity between financial years.
You can decide to spend money on training now - and we will invoice you - before you decide exactly which courses you want to book. Your account will be kept in credit with statements supplied to show deductions as you make bookings.
This facility means that members can secure training from this financial year but keep the flexibility to decide which staff will attend particular courses at particular venues. You can of course also pay for LABC residential conference places using pre-pay.
A purchase order is a document sent to a supplier, authorising purchase of a product to the customer with a specified price and terms.
The creation of a purchase order creates a legally binding contract and most councils' finance departments won't pay invoices without valid purchase order numbers.
We will need full payment of your invoice before attending any course.
Once you're booked and confirmed on the course, we'll send joining instructions to you. The instructions will let you know what you need to bring with you on the day.
All training courses have a "smart casual" dress code.
Lunch will be provided on all full-day courses and morning half-day courses. Afternoon half-day courses won't include lunch.
A delegate can transfer his or her place to another person within the same organisation. Please advise LABC of any name changes as soon as possible if you want to do this.
