Delivering our PD courses during COVID-19

Continuing to deliver high quality services for our members at this difficult time is fundamental, including continuing to support your training needs with a minimal level of disruption during this period of uncertainty.

We are therefore delighted to announce that all of our professional development courses for the next few months, including the CIR revision course, will now be run online as virtual courses. The courses will continue to be delivered by the same trainers who run all of our classroom-based sessions and, at this time, all of the courses currently on our website will be going ahead as virtual courses at the same date and time as planned, unless you have been told otherwise by a member of our team.

We are working hard with our trainers to make sure you still get the same quality of training you would in the classroom, and, as always, full details will be sent on how to join the course when you book.  Once we all return to our offices, we will return to our normal procedure of running our courses as live face-to-face events, and we will inform everyone of any developments on this closer to the time. We hope that the experience we gain running these virtual courses will allow us to offer more of our professional development courses to IR Society members based outside London, and indeed outside the UK, in the future.

For anyone already booked to attend one of these courses please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. If you are thinking about booking onto a course, from 1st April 2020 we will be offering an ‘early bird’ discount rate for bookings on all of our courses, for both members and non-members, and pricing will be as follows:

  • Book more than four weeks prior to the course date – 25% off the stated price
  • Book more than two weeks prior to the course date – 20% off the stated price
  • Book one week prior to the course date – 10% off the stated price

If you would like to discuss a new booking or have any questions on our online offering, please do not hesitate to contact Jessica Hyett on

Like yourselves, our team are now based at home but are still available to all our members via phone call and email. Please check our Cornonavirus section on our website for the latest advice and support.
