About WCADA Training

If you just want to find out a bit more about alcohol and drugs or are looking for specialist practitioner training, we have something for you.

All of our training is delivered in a relaxed environment where people can feel at ease to ask any questions that they may have. Courses are delivered by qualified trainers who are also practitioners with current first-hand knowledge of the topic that they are delivering. Due to COVID-19 and the related restrictions, we are able to provide training through online platforms.

Our training is quality assured and accredited through Agored Cymru. Sessions can be tailored to suit organisational needs so please get in touch if you would like to enquire about any bespoke training sessions that you may be interested in.
