Important information about the Black Belt Program

  1. Black Belt Classroom Courses
    It’s no longer possible to register for public Black Belt Pro, Pro Advanced, Partner or Leader courses. However, these courses remain available to buy and run as in-house training.
  2. Black Belt Virtual Skills Courses
