CAMRA would be nothing without our army of volunteers. Many bring existing knowledge and skills from their daily lives to help the organisation. However, we also recognise that a little training with give others confidence to take on new roles. In other cases training is essential for safety and legal compliance. As well as helping you to help CAMRA, such training can be useful to members in other walks of life too.
We can now give CAMRA volunteers access to online courses offered by CPL, a leading provider of training to the retail and hospitality sectors. Their City and Guilds approved courses are designed to be interactive, providing information in a variety of ways. You can complete them in your own time, at your own pace.
You can see the list of available courses below. More detail about each course can be found at http://www.cple-learning.co.uk/courses. If you believe you might benefit from one of these, please email your branch chairman or training co-ordinator and request the course. If they are satisfied that the course is suitable and there is room in the budget they have been allocated, they will approve it and you will receive an email with a link that will allow you to access the course.
We hope many of you will take advantage of this fantastic new facility offered by CAMRA.

Lord Roy Kennedy of Southwark, Shadow Spokesperson for the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), has confirmed his support for strengthening planning laws to protect vulnerable pubs across England.
New research, which shows that moderate alcohol consumption with friends at a local pub may be linked to improved wellbeing, has been published in the journal Adaptive Human Behaviour and Physiology.
Permanent measures to keep pub doors open need to be introduced now, according to the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), as it marks 2,000 campaigning groups across England successfully listing their local pub as an Asset of Community Value (ACV).
