Bespoke Training for Individual Organisations

Please note that we are still taking enquires for our bespoke training, however following the escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, we have taken the decision to postpone all of our face-to-face bespoke training until further notice.

In addition to running our general training programme, CRD also offers bespoke training for individual organisations on both technical and procedural matters. The main benefit to the delivery of bespoke training is that the training is specifically tailored to meet your organisation's individual needs and enables you to address specific problem areas that are relevant to your organisation. This training can be delivered at our offices in York, or at a location of your choice.

CRD has previously organised the following bespoke training events for various organisations and Member States:

  • Co-ordination & Procedures
  • Physical/Chemical Properties
  • Fate &Behaviour
  • Consumer Risk Assessment & Residues
  • Operator Exposure
  • Dermal Absorption

If you would be interested in discussing the possibility of CRD providing your organisation with a tailor-made training programme, or if you would simply like us to deliver an existing training programme at your office, please contact Jon Winfield by emailing .

In accordance with our financial remit, HSE has to recover costs for the work it delivers. Consequently, a charge would have to be made for the preparation and delivery of the training, and any associated travel and subsistence costs.

Please note that CRD will not be able to provide advice on specific application work as part of the bespoke service. Such queries should be dealt with in the usual manner.
