Request a training session

The DCC offers training on request both in the UK and internationally.*

We can develop and deliver training courses which are tailored to suit your requirements. As well as the content, we can customise the format; you can have a half day or a full day training session or several sessions run on consecutive days. You provide the venue and participants, and the DCC will provide the trainers and materials.

We can train on a variety of topics including:

Forthcoming training events

The DCC has a programme of training events running throughout the year. Delivered by people with years of training experience and in-depth subject knowledge, courses are open to all and aim to bring together individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines.

Comprising a mixture of presentations and breakout group exercises, our training sessions are designed to equip you with the skills you’ll need to manage and share data effectively, as well as providing an opportunity to transfer knowledge and share best practice.
