  4. I see from your response to Shamimi (above) that a training course for volunteers commenced in February 2017 (rather than the apparently usual month of September). Will there be another training course in February 2018?

    1. Hello Patrick. The next training course will be in September 2018. We had a number of reasons for conducting the training in Feb this year (2017) but will revert to Sept from next year onward.
