Dates of the next training course will be published on the website when they become available.

Stop smoking practitioners should refresh their training every 2 years by completing the NCSCT Online Training and Assessment programme for stop smoking practitioners http://www.ncsct.co.uk/publication_training-and-assessment-programme.php and attending a half day refresher training commissioned by Public Health Warwickshire. Dates of the next training course will be published on the website when they become available.
