How this training works

The training is divided into manageable sections. Each section can be worked on separately and you are able to leave and re-join from different devices from the point at which here you left off. The training can be completed when you choose. You can work at your own pace and as and when your working day allows. Your licence is valid for 12 months from date of purchase and you can revisit the course material as often as you wish to refresh your memory or for reference purposes.


The training is presented in a linear fashion which guides you through each section in turn. Each sub-section needs to be completed before moving onto the next. Once the training has been completed you can revisit the module and drop in and out of any section, in any order, as you wish.

There are also a number of useful links within the sections for those who require greater detail or more information on that topic, for reference purposes or to deal with queries on a given point.

Although assessing the information in the links is not obligatory and does not form part of the training, it is recommended that delegates should use these useful sources of information to gain a better understanding of Fair recruitment and selection.

At the end of the course is a test of your knowledge via randomly selected questions designed to be of relevance to barristers and the Chambers environment. Attaining a pass mark of 75% or more will gain access to a training certificate which you can download and print for your records.
