No – you will be given a book containing all the course material when you arrive at the venue – this will provide all the information you need.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING TO THE COURSE?

Just bring yourself! You will be provided with a pen/pencil, course manual and paper. If you would like to bring your own notebook and pen – that’s entirely up to you.
