At AMC, we understand how busy our working lives can be and taking time off work isn’t always possible. Therefore, AMC also offer weekend training for all our courses including our Civil and Commercial and Workplace Accreditations. Most of our courses are over one weekend or even a day, with our accredited courses being offered over two consecutive weekends.
Mediation within the workplace is becoming increasingly recognised as a cost effective way in resolving disputes.
