Intensive Courses from happy

Intensive courses have been created specifically for those who need to learn a great deal of content at a faster pace. Each one is focused on increasing your productivity, and building a substantial expertise in just a single day. These courses will be longer, faster and more intensive than a standard classroom course. If you can keep up, the rewards will definitely be worth the effort.

Group Learning Events

If you have five or more learners, a private group event could be cheaper.

We can tailor the content to your team, and host the workshop inhouse at your workplace or here at Happy's HQ in Aldgate, Central London.

If you are unable to attend your course due to Coronavirus we have a number of alternative solutions we can offer you to still meet your training needs despite travel limitations – please get in touch with us to discuss a suitable solution. Potential solutions may mean sending a trainer to your location or delivering your training online.
