Upcoming training events

Over recent years, a number of the Centres of Expertise have organised training courses for professionals with an interest in EB, which have been well-received and are being repeated, usually annually. A modular online training course is in development by the London centres.

We encourage anyone organising a training event to make us aware of the details, so that we can post it here. We can be contacted using this form.

See details of current training courses below.
