AAP training

We require that AAP Managers attend the ½ day AAP Managers course and ½ day Introduction to DofE course. If you are a new AAP this will be within 6 months of being licensed. If you are a new AAP Manager (for instance, if there has been a changeover of staff), we also ask that these courses are completed by the new manager.
