As proud supporters of the Technician Commitment, the RMS continues to offer technical training subsidies to empower and support members of the technical community to take part in RMS training events.  If you are in a technician role working in higher education or research and would like to apply for a subsidy on the course registration fee, please complete the application form under the Technician Subsidy tab before registering for the course.  If you are awarded a subsidy you may be asked to write or contribute to a short report for infocus about your learning outcomes following the training.

Further information about the RMS Technician Commitment may be found at the following link  

By agreeing to the terms and conditions of booking you have agreed to abide by the Code of Conduct set out for all attendees at RMS Events.
