We are occasionally asked to shorten courses, but we would have no credibility as a training company if we joined the race to the bottom.
Some of our courses hold certified/verified CPD status, so we cannot change from the registered course duration. We offer regulated courses where Ofqual/HSE set the course duration, these cannot be altered. When we write courses such as Manual Handling (Objects), the course duration is set by how long it is going to take to properly cover the material. Other providers may be able to cover the material quicker, but we would ask whether learning taking place or are people being lectured at, rather than educated.
We would also not be delivering the course we have advertised, so would not be able to issue a certificate.
