How To Book Your DIY Course

View All DIY Course Dates
We run courses all year round and publish all the dates on our course dates page. To see when dates are running for a particular course, go to the individual course page.
To book and pay for your course, simply click on your chosen date, then choose one of the many payment options we offer.
If your chosen course date is fully booked, then you can add yourself to the "Wait List" so if a place becomes available you will be notified and you can book it. Otherwise try another date which says "Book Now".
If we get any late cancellations and you haven't added yourself to the "Wait List" you can follow us on our Facebook and Twitter pages, where we announce the release of new dates and cancellations.
