To ensure that this training opportunity is open to all there is currently no fee for participating in the online course. 
It usually takes around 2 hours to complete the online course, however this will vary for each individual, and you can pause the module at any stage and then continue at your convenience. 
You have 60 days for completing the module once you start. The system saves your progress as you go through it, so when you log out you can sign in again as often as required and continue from where you left off.
Ayrshire Smiles provides a superb foundation for new recruits and also as a refresher for those experienced in delivering customer service, and can be used to complement your existing training.
