Autumn 2020 Training programme

Recordings now available

Have you missed a training session, or are Sundays not convenient for you? We are recording the training sessions, and, for a small charge, WPS members can sign up to watch the class(es) that they missed.

About the training programme

WPS runs a wide range of classroom training events with qualified tutors.

These courses for our members are great value because they are subsidised by the Society.

Topics range from camera settings for beginners, to the inner details of Lightroom.

Because of Covid-19, training courses will be online until further notice.

All classes are on Sundays; 10.30am-1pm and/or 1:30pm to 4pm.

WPS Training Oct-Dec 2020 classes are all planned to be offered on GoToMeeting.
A four-for-three special offer is in place for classes before 16th November.

  • Choose the course(s) you’d like to attend
  • Make the bookings
  • You can pay for each class separately by buying tickets on Eventbrite, however we prefer that you pay as follows
    • Decide how you want to pay (BACS, Paypal or cheque) and then make payment
