We run over 150 courses a year, delivered at our modern, bright and airy, purpose-built Learning Centre. Based at the Birmingham Business Park, we are easily accessible via major road, rail and air networks.
Our naturally lit, air-conditioned training rooms enable you to concentrate on your learning in the best possible environment with excellent facilities, refreshments and plenty of workspace. If required, we will be happy to recommend a selection of hotels in close proximity, offering high levels of accommodation to suit your budget.
A full list of courses and dates can be viewed here.
Industry Forum knows that training large numbers of your team can be challenging and costly with travel and subsistence for multiple employees. As such, when you need to train four or more individuals, we can provide a cost-effective alternative to visiting our dedicated Learning Centre by providing in-house training on your site. This cost-effective solution means you can guarantee your team are aligned in training outcomes as they experience the same course. Furthermore, teams often report the additional benefit of team building.
Contact us to discuss your in-house training needs.
Bringing one of our trainers on-site has benefits which by far outweigh just reducing the overall costs of the programme. We provide bespoke training to meet your specific challenges, adapting our course material with case studies and group activities to meet your specific business goals. We work with you to design training, concentrating on what is most important to your employees or additional supportive materials where your team has an opportunity to develop. This approach ensures your team make the very best of the learning experience and produces the best outcome for long-term success.

The Majority of Industry Forum’s training courses are now available remotely and delivered virtually. The trainer-led courses have been adapted to make them interactive and engaging when delivered digitally, and provide full certification, sanctioned by the SMMT Oversight office, when completed.
We limit the number of delegates on our virtually delivered, instructor-led courses to ensure the same level of learning and contact with the expert trainer that you expect from our face to face courses.

Industry Forum offers a number of eLearning programs. Our self-directed, bite-sized modules, provides key, basic information, which are an ideal starting point for employees with little, or no existing knowledge in the subject area, and who want a flexible approach to training.
We also offer a number of self directed study options which provide full certification, such as the world class APICS online system and our PRINCE2 programme.
