Training option 1: Programs at the Centre for Professional Development Clinical Training Centre
This option is best for those who require only part of their team to be trained at one time. It also makes an enjoyable team-building day for you and your staff.
Training option 2: Programs at your surgery
For groups of more than six team members, it’s more cost efficient to have Cynergex Group attend your surgery to conduct training. Please allow sufficient space in the surgery and reception area for the practical sessions. Contact Cynergex Group directly on 02 9420 4699 for further details.
