    FREE Online Revision

    With our latest Train the Trainer courses, you get free online revision for a full 12 months after your class so you can reinforce the knowledge you have gained.

    Access is simple: go to www.activia.co.uk/login/ and log in using your email address.   This will give you free access to our e-learning revision modules.

    Note: These have been developed and written exclusively by Activia to maximise effectiveness, by matching the online content exactly to what you cover in class.   We hope you have fun, on the day of the course and with honing your knowledge afterwards!

    General Information

    All Activia train the trainer training has been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Train the Trainer training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

    Class Sizes

    Maximum class size for Train the Trainer courses is 10 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 12 delegates.

    Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.

    For training at your offices, we can deliver classes of up to 15 delegates, though with bigger class sizes you must understand that there is less time for questions from delegates, and this may affect the quality of their experience.
