Cumbria Alcohol and Drug Advisory Service

Training

Here at Cadas we offer a wide range training to external professionals, as well as an extensive training package to our own volunteers.

Our professional training courses range from general drug and alcohol awareness, to seminars on specific substances (for example; Volatile Substance Abuse). We also offer bespoke in-house training that is tailored to specific organisational need.

Additionally to become a Cadas Volunteer, individuals are required to undergo a package of training specific to their role. This is then supplemented by continued professional development courses throughout their time with us.

You can find details of all our upcoming training below.
