Now that we are delivering training virtually we routinely ask all delegates to provide us with a contact telephone number that can be used to reach them on the day they are attending the training. This is for the following reasons.

• In the event of connection troubles for the trainers, so they are able to contact all delegates and explain the next steps

• The trainer is concerned for the welfare of a delegate and would like to contact them “outside” of the virtual training environment
