Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions. Click on the question that is relevant to you. If you can't find what you are looking for please contact us.
Can you provide training elsewhere in Ireland?
For our public course, registration is normally at 9.15am, and training courses run from 9.30 until 5pm. This may vary, particularly for private courses, so we send automatic emails to confirm exact times for each trainee.
If you have not received a confirmation email, it may have been sent to the person who booked the training course for your organisation, so please check with them. Also it is a good idea to check your junk email folder.
If you still have not found your confirmation email, please contact us.
When we make a booking, our system is programmed to automatically send a confirmation, within about 30 minutes. This email contains all the joining instructions for the training course. A second email, with the same details, is sent as a reminder a couple of days before the course.
By default, this email is sent to the trainee, with the organiser's email address in the CC line, but you can change it to be sent only to the trainee, or only to the organiser, as you wish, just get in touch.
Most likely there is a problem with the junk mail filters on your mail server. You should bring this to the attention of your IT department and ask them to add all emails in the buatraining.com domain to their white list, which will avoid this problem.
You can find our current schedule of all courses and prices here. This page is linked live to our booking system, so the information (including places available) is automatically updated.
We are happy to help. We ask all trainees to complete a pre-course questionnaire so we can advise you what course will suit you best, and so the tutor can prepare to make the course relevant to your needs. Click here for our questionnaires.
Where are you located and how do I get there?
Our training centre is located at Brooks Hotel, 62 Drury Street, Dublin 2. See here for a map and directions
Is there parking available?
The Drury Street, St Stephen's Green and Brown Thomas multi-storey car parks are all very close by. We don't advise parking on the street, because it isn't possible to park there for the day. We advise taking public transport as our training centre is very close to the Dart, Luas and all major bus routes.
What do I need to bring?
Our training centre is fully equipped, and we supply all training materials, so you just need to bring yourself, and any files you would like to show the trainer, on a disk, CD or memory stick.
What is included in the cost of the course?
The course includes all course materials, course customisation (if required) and 12 months post-course support. Lunch and light refreshments are supplied when you use our training centre.
Are there any limitations on the post course support?
People who complete our training courses are entitled to 12 months post-course support - if you have a question about anything covered in your training course. You can find the terms and conditions on our post course support here.
