Personal injury on-demand legal training

Personal injury on-demand training

If you have missed an event or are unable to view APIL training live on the day, all APIL events are recorded and available for six months from the date of delivery. With a variety of knowledgeable speakers, APIL on-demand learning is accessible via the web, streamed directly to your computer, or downloaded to your mobile device in either video or audio mp3 format whichever you prefer. Personal injury on-demand training is also a convenient way of topping up your CPD hours to maintain your accreditation.

On-demand training

Our on-demand training is typically available for six months after the live online event, but we do suggest that you check that the content is still relevant before signing up
