Continuing professional development with Altro

To continue our commitment to industry development and high quality customer service, we have developed a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses focusing on main issues surrounding floor, wall and door products, plus their impact on the wellbeing of the people using the spaces where they are installed.

 

More information about these CPDs is given below. Each seminar is approximately one hour long and is designed to fit flexibly within busy work schedules. Courses are currently being delivered by our sales consultants online, as part of a webinar session.

 

For more details or to book a course, please contact our Customer Care Centre on 01462 707604 or email cpd@altro.com. Alternatively select an upcoming webinar session from the pulldown menu below, and complete the registration form. Our CPD webinars take place using Microsoft Teams – you will receive an email with a meeting link, and support on joining the session, if needed, by 10am on the day of the session.
