The National Trainers’ Course
The National Trainers Course is a 2½ day programme delivered by an INWA International Trainer. It comprises a mixture of theory and practical sessions.
A National Trainers’ Course is delivered just before the annual INWA Convention by an INWA International Trainer. It may also be delivered in an INWA member country if there are sufficient numbers to fill the course.
In some situations, an INWA member may invite participants from other countries to join in on a course that they have arranged.
