Would your organisation like to host a River Styles course or workshop? Here’s how.
We currently use two models, host and in-house, depending on the course of workshop being offered:
- In-house model: AccessMQ, in collaboration with the instructors, administer the course
- Host model: A host will provide logistical support for running the course and the instructors are paid on a daily rate. AccessMQ liaise with the host organisation during the course set-up process.
