Training

TLASA offers training throughout the year that is facilitated by our service provider, Cotlands, at a discounted rate to TLASA members. Courses take place at various training offices in all the provinces. Training can also be organised at your worksite – please request a quote from info@tlasa.org. The training is in the process of being accredited. Training is skills-based, focusing on toys and giving participants hands-on knowledge. Certificates of attendance will be issued.
