The full lineup

BPCA announced the first virtual classroom courses last month. The roster of taught courses you can now take from the comfort of your sofa now includes:

Unlike traditional online learning courses, BPCA’s virtual classroom has a live tutor you can interact with during the day.

As in a classroom environment, candidates will be encouraged to engage in discussions, share experiences and ask questions.

Discounts for members

All BPCA training programmes and qualifications have discounts available for anyone who works for a member company.

Because the courses are new, we’ve set introductory prices for all online classroom courses.

You can take part in a course from £95+VAT.
