AVN training is designed to help you be more proactive for your clients (it’s not technical training). Our sessions aim to inform and involve you so you come away with a solid grasp of the subject and the tools you need to implement it in your firm.
On Demand Training
We’ve created a suite of on demand training programmes to help you on your AVN journey:
|AVN Induction||Designed to give you an overview of the AVN tools and resources you have in Foundation membership and how to access them.|
|Quick Wins||Shows you all the AVN tools and resources that can give you quick wins, be that return on investment, better relationships with your clients, or reducing your debtors and unlocking cash.|
|Cultivate and Grow||Once you have some wins under your belt it’s time to start looking at your business, engaging your team and offering new and exciting services to your clients.|
|Making it stick||To successfully move forward you have to get your team engaged with your plans and start a systemised approach to running your practice. This programme shows you how to utilise the AVN tools and resources to do just that.|
You’ll find the training programmes in System Builder – just type On Demand into the Knowledge Base.

AVN refund policy
If you need to cancel your place at an AVN event, we’ll give you a full refund as long as we have your cancellation in writing (an email is fine) at least 14 days beforehand.
If you cancel your booking less than 14 days beforehand you can send someone else in your place instead – just let us know the new delegate name. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to issue a refund so close to an event. We will already have confirmed your place with the venue and will have to pay them the full cost so we do have to pass this on. We hope you understand that to keep ticket prices to AVN events as low as we possibly can, we can’t be more flexible on this.
