  • NB Tutor: Please KEEP THE REGISTER ON YOUR DESK THROUGHOUT THE DAY IN CASE OF EMERGENCY and encourage attendees to sign in during the networking period at the start of the day. You need to NOTE when a DELEGATE LEAVES – THERE IS A COLUMN FOR THIS - some do leave early - as their certificate shows the number of "learning hours" for their CPD and like this to be accurate, thank you!
