The DSWA organises in-house training courses for members interested in running short courses for beginners.  The courses are available to those holding at least the Intermediate/Level 2 certificate and details are sent to those eligible to attend, as and when dates are arranged.  The course takes place over a two-day period, usually a weekend, and gives candidates the opportunity to practice instructional techniques and to plan training events.
