As part of our commitment to promoting the PR industry, we’ve developed a programme of training courses to offer you the chance to develop as PR practitioners. All of the courses have a practical focus, meaning the skills, techniques and best practice taught in our sessions can be used with immediate effect upon returning to work. This training programme has been developed using courses from the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) based in the UK.

As our members span all corners of the globe, ICCO offers a series of interactive 90 minute ‘webinars’. Delegates can choose to attend these sessions live online or learn via a recorded training session in their own time.

Live Online Training – Delegates attend these sessions live online, with the opportunity to interact with the trainer. These sessions run at a scheduled date and time (all in GMT).

OnDemand Training – Delegates have the flexibility to learn at a time and place that suits them, with ICCO’s recorded online training sessions. Delegates have 30 days to view the content from the date of purchase.

Advanced Courses – Designed for those at management level. Helping to improve teams, accounts and financial performance.
