Exclusively bringing together the elite of health care training, faces you will recognise from journals, education and television.

Each trainer has their own unique style, with delivery which is memorable and contemporary. Their portfolios include experience of university education, study days, television appearances, publication and presentation work.

Our aim at Et al Training is to provide all Health Care Professionals working in Primary Care with memorable, creative and above all fun training events that will explain the why as well as the how in patient care.  We build confidence in all our delegates and to this end we tailor all our events specifically to our audience.  You will not find death by Powerpoint at Et al Training, but what you will find is creative and innovative delivery in your sort of language.

Cath Robertson is a well known trainer with loads of experience in the field of physical activity promotion.
A physiotherapist by trade, with experience in community services, mental health and cardiac rehabilitation, she has now become best known for teaching motivational interviewing. She became despondent at the revolving door of people returning time and time again with no change.
So in her efforts to feel more effective she developed her motivational interviewing skill, as she says its like the WD40 for helping people change.
