COURSE START DATES
Usually scheduled to meet customer needs or run as a private course. Please email for details
We offer a wide range of public courses which well cover the training needs of the majority of
individuals looking to learn the subjects we teach. However, there are occasions when a trainee needs to learn
additional topics that are not covered on an appropriate public course, even though we might have the training
material available for private courses. With such training requirements in mind, we offer "extra days" which are
a private course run to cover just the extra topics that are relevant to you in addition to your regular public
The module list (below) is just an example of the material we can cover on "Extra Days", which are
tailored individually and arrange on dates to the mutual convenience of trainer and trainee.
Attendance on appropriate public or private Well House Consultants courses that
prepare you for the material to be covered.

• Hotel rooms are available for arrival the night before the course starts, for departure after the end of the course on the last day.
Please see our regular list of public courses
. If (for example) you're
new to programming but want to learn Python where our course assumes prior knowledge of another language,
we can lay on an extra day to prepare you for the main course - turning a three day course into a four
day "Learning to Program in Python".
Upon completion of your course, you'll have online access to the source code of
all the examples from the course, and you'll have access to the
"Ask the Tutor" forum
where you can raise questions. We also encourage you to email the tutor, and
to visit us again to use our library as appropriate.
