RTA was established in 2003 and over the years has built up an enviable reputation for being one of the leading training providers in the country.
In June 2015, RTA was acquired by Forum Business Media Ltd, which is based in Twickenham and specialises in publishing as well as delivering some training events too.
Our absolute commitment to high quality training remains unchanged; we remain focused on meticulous research to identify the most relevant topics, the appropriate course content and the practical instruction to achieve the right learning outcomes for our delegates.
We continue to pride ourselves on the quality of our presenters, all of whom are experts in their subjects, with many years of hands-on, professional experience in a variety of settings.
Our comprehensive training materials provided with each event are always warmly received by delegates, acting as a useful reference tool once back in the workplace.
While we aim to offer a reasonable geographic spread of training events, it’s also our desire to continue providing regional training, as well as some online training options. If there is a particular demand in your area or you are interested in working with us collaboratively, then do contact us and you just might influence our future provision!

Here we endeavour to answer the most Frequently Asked Questions about our training:
What is the booking procedure?
You can make a booking by phone, post, fax, email or the website.
Once received and processed, we will send you a booking acknowledgement via email.
Then, 10-14 days before the event, we will email you full joining instructions including information on how to find the venue and anything else you need to know.
We will only invoice you once an event is confirmed to run. You also have the option to pay online.
We advise delegates not to book any travel arrangements until an event is confirmed.
Since most of our communications with delegates are electronic, it is very important we have accurate email contacts for all delegates.
Do you offer any discounts on prices?
Yes! Multiple delegate booking discounts are available on most full price, one day courses. Please contact us for prices.
Note that multiple delegate booking discounts are only valid for the SAME course and when ALL delegates can attend. The bookings must all be made together in the first instance.
We also offer Early Bird discounts for conference bookings and these will be noted on the relevant course pages.
From time-to-time, we will offer a loyalty discount to existing customers – subscribe to our email newsletters via the form in the footer below to make sure you don’t miss out!
