The Renal Association organises some courses, and gives support or just publicity to some others. Regular courses can receive certification from the Renal Association. They must be genuinely educational, not marketing, and provide the results of evaluation from previous courses. For more information, contact the Secretariat or convenor of the Education and Training Committee.
