Annual Training Event

The NRoSO Annual Training Event (ATE) is delivered by approved trainers, and is open to all NRoSO members. It provides up to date information on topics relevant for the current year as well as acting as refresher training to keep knowledge current.

This one-day course provides 10 CPD points and is an interactive learning experience with an online test to check your understanding of the course. The test will be multiple-choice questions and will take about ten minutes to complete. The online test will either be embedded within the one-day training event or taken in your own time – your trainer will advise on which method is available for you.

CPD Points: 10 CPD points on successful completion.

Dates: Various dates will be available from November - May.
