Coronavirus: our events and training

Following government advice, we will have to consider postponing most face-to-face training and networking events planned for March and April. We will look to rearrange these soon.

In the interim, wherever possible, learning events will take place online, and we would encourage you to visit DIA Academy and browse our courses. If you are self-isolating, or lesson cancellations mean your diary is quieter than normal, now might be the time to do some CPD. We have a wide range of short courses, webinars and longer courses leading to nationally recognised qualifications available.

Contact the training team if you’re unsure about the status of an upcoming event or training session, or to discuss your training requirements in general.

Be assured that the health, safety and wellbeing of our people, clients, office visitors, and delegates at our events is absolutely paramount.

We continue to follow Government and Public Health England guidance to ensure we are taking the necessary precautions. If the situation changes and further events are cancelled, we will, of course, inform you as quickly as possible.

If you have any queries, please do contact us at and we’ll be happy to help.
