Training Solutions at Blue Novation


***update January 2022***

In order to protect our staff, our delegates and the organisations who train with us, all scheduled face-to-face training courses are suspended until the second quarter of 2022. We are still providing training “on-site” at a customer’s premises.

We offer “live and online” versions of all our courses and delegates can access training from their homes or offices.

Our scheduled face to face training will be available as soon as it is safe and possible to do so. In the meantime, thank you for your understanding and support during this challenging and unprecedented time.

For more information please get in touch via our contact page.

Excel Advanced Review
Trainee Accountant
We have worked with Blue Novation since at least 2006. We have always found them to be thoroughly professional and always willing to adapt their products to meet our needs.

They continue to support several big IT rollouts and have taken the time to understand our requirements before suggesting learning solutions.

Our learners have always provided excellent feedback about Blue Novation’s courses, trainers and facilities and I have personally recommended them to my colleagues within other local authorities in Suffolk.”
