Discounted Online Training Courses

Here at Bournemouth Chamber, we are passionate about helping our members in any way that we can.  We are therefore delighted to be able to offer a suite of online training courses for you.


These courses are offered EXCLUSIVELY to members at discounted rates and there are a number of options available to ‘bundle’ topics together, buy in bulk or via a unlimited subscription model.  This means you can have access to all or some of the courses for a budget to suit your business so that you can train all employees in a fun and cost-effective way.

The courses are completed online in your own time.  They are one-to-one, interactive and tutor lead courses and all are approved and certified by professionals and professional bodies.  Once successfully completed you will receive a personal certificate to demonstrate your competence.

This can be used to support a personal development programme or to meet regulated or safety obligations.  They can also be useful refreshers for managers or employees who may just need a little guidance occasionally when finding themselves in challenging situations.  They are also great as part of an induction programme or a general programme of management training.


The link below will take you to a list of all of the courses that are available with their normal recommended price.

or you can refer to the link below for the full list.

As members, we guarantee you will pay significantly less for these courses than the prices listed, and you can select any number and any combination of these courses.

All you need to do is send an email to: outlining the topics you are interested in studying and we will get back to you with a price and details on how to access your chosen courses.

Additionally, we can set up free trials so you can select those that you are interested and ‘test’ before you buy.

Happy Training Everybody!

Local businesses have been doing their bit to be covid-safe, so it’s now time to support them and shop local, safely.

Our town centres and high streets have so much to offer. From must-have fashions to delicious homemade food, the experiences across our areas are unrivalled.

We are encouraging you to make an active choice to shop and spend locally to keep the BCP area’s unique local businesses thriving.

About the Rediscover campaign

To support the safe return to town centres and high streets, we are launching the Rediscover campaign, funded by a Reopening High Streets Safely grant from the European Regional Development Fund, allocated to us by the government.

The initiative aims to reassure people that it is safe to shop and eat out, and remind them of the unique appeal of businesses and retailers.

We have also been helping businesses access financial support and safety guidance throughout the pandemic.
