Note: to achieve the full REAL Alternatives 4 LIFE CPD (Continued Professional Development) Certificate you must take a practical training course and assessment with one of our authorised training providers. See the website at www.realalternatives.eu for a list of locations of training courses available.
Lists of recommended additional information are provided at the end of each module in case you want to find out more about a topic. These are often produced by manufacturers or specialist associations. All material has been peer reviewed by our panel to ensure it provides good quality technical advice and information, which is more detailed than we can provide in our e-learning programme. Inclusion as a link does not imply endorsement of products and there is no commercial links with any of the companies referred to.
