  • Online registration is by card only - this is our preference ...
  • We encourage people to pay by card where possible. If a customer would like to receive an invoice from the College and pay through this route, a purchase order number must be provided to Imperial College.  Course details will only be sent upon payment being received by the College. This process might be a lot longer and normally takes up to several weeks.  Therefore, payment by card is much quicker and easier if you would like to avoid delay.
  • Imperial College staff can pay by internal transfer if they wish

Suitable for - Occupational Health professionals (including Occupational Health technicians) who have limited (or no) experience of spirometry.  This event is not thought suitable for Physicians.
