As this is an information session no level is assigned to it.

The IOWSCP provides fully-funded training to its partner and relevant agencies, but we do ask individuals to book a ticket so that we can manage numbers. Please be aware that if an individual fails to cancel their ticket or notify us they will be unable to attend, agencies will be charged a non-attendance fee of £120 (per whole training day).

The IOWSAB offer free training to their partner agencies.  In the case of non-attendance, or cancellation within 24 hours of an event, a fee of £50 will be incurred.  This fee will be waived if a suitable delegate is sent instead.
