Where several professionals in a region are jointly interested in training to use the 3di, it can be convenient and economic to commission a course in your area - your accommodation and travel costs are avoided, and time is not sacrificed to travel. Regional courses have proved to be a very good framework for bringing together the many different professions involved with ASD children - both in places where those professions already work closely and in places where greater coordination is an aspiration.
A regional course delivers the same two-day training programme, software licences, and post-course support as the London course. There is a minimum charge for a regional course; but with as few as ten trainees it can be cheaper overall than coming to London.
