Mandatory Ongoing learning

Some training requires ‘re-validation’ after certain periods of time – if unsure just redo the training below – it does not take that long, both together can be done in 1.5hrs maximum. NB: Don’t forget to save (screenshot) your on-screen certificate at the end as this will be needed to add completion to your training record.
