  • Terms and Conditions
    Terms and Conditions Relating to our Live Course Deliveries

    The Course Organiser

    The live MRI in Practice course is presented internationally in 22 countries. The presenters are Catherine Westbrook and John Talbot (hereafter identified as the
    presenters).
    In most cases Cathy and John are contracted to present the course by a local course organiser who administers the course, takes payments from delegates and is usually registered for VAT etc. In some cases the organiser may be a registered company involved in health, education or both.
    All requests for information relating to the administration of the courses (with the exception of the Amsterdam course) including payments, refunds etc should be directed to the relevant course organiser. This can be done by using the on-line info request forms relating to each course.
    The Amsterdam course is organised directly by www.mrieducation.com and all enquiries should be directed to info@mrieducation.com.


    Intellectual Property and Copyright Issues

    The names
    MRI in Practice, and MRI in Practice / The Course are copyright 1992-present date Blackwell Science (Wiley Books) & Catherine Westbrook.
    All text and graphics in this web site and in the course materials are copyright (2009-present date) Blackwell Science (Wiley Books) and John Talbot.

    Audio and video recording of the live course content is strictly prohibited including (but not limited to) the use of mobile phones, iPods, iPads, tablet PCs, voice recorders, digital cameras and any type of computer. The presenters reserve the right to ask individual delegates to leave the lecture room in the event of them using any type of mobile electronic equipment. Lectures will not commence if there are any electronic items in evidence at the beginning of each session. The presenters will pause presentations in the event that any portable electronic device appears to be in use during a presentation. We have had to introduce these rules following attempts to make illegal video copies of the course materials and they are strictly enforced.


    Course Pricing

    Course pricing may vary by country and by venue and is set by the individual organisers (as defined in paragraph 1). This will reflect the venue cost, the level of sponsorship and transport costs.
    MRI in Practice (The Book) may be offered inclusive of the course fee in certain venues. Please check with the course organiser at the time of application. The course fee NEVER includes accommodation or travel.


    Payments

    For your peace of mind, all payments processed directly from www.mrieducation.com are arranged through Stripe. Stripe provide a secure, fraud-protected, banking infrastructure for on-line payments. Stripe payments may not be available from your international location.


    Course Cancellation

    The course has been running continuously for over 25 years and cancellations are rare (only on three occasions to date). In the unlikely event of a course cancellation please note that the presenters and course organisers (as defined in paragraph 1) are not responsible for reimbursing anything other than the registration fee (where applicable) or the deposit (where applicable). Course organisers are not responsible for the reimbursement of any additional costs incurred by delegates in connection to their attendance at the course (for example travel costs or accommodation costs) We therefore strongly advise delegates who are travelling to the host city and staying in the venue hotel (or elsewhere) to take out travel insurance to cover any lost expenditure.


    Course Content

    The course materials are updated constantly, to keep pace with changes within the field of MRI and to take advantage of the latest presentation technology and as such the course content may vary over time. The programme provided on this web site and in our promotional materials is for guidance only and we reserve the right to alter the timing and running order of the lectures to meet the requirements of the individual organiser and the venue.

Pricing and Content (UK Course)

The UK course is a four-day course, but delegates can choose to attend days 1&2 and then return for days 3&4 at a later date. This helps to facilitate study leave and also allows radiographers to put the basic principles into practice before attending the second two days.
CPD endorsement from the Society and College of Radiographers is awarded on a whole-course basis.
CPD certification is therefore only awarded to delegates who have attended all four days - either in one block or in two blocks.
Days 03 and 04 are only available to delegates who have previously attended OUR course days 01 and 02.

Pricing for 2018

Please check with our local organiser when booking for any pricing updates.


Essentials (2 days) £399 (with early booking discount £367.50)


Additional Concepts (2 days) £399 (with early booking discount £367.50)


Complete course (4 days) £699 (with early booking discount £667.50)

*Please note that course prices vary by country, calendar-year and by venue. This reflects room-hire costs, AV-hire costs, levels of sponsorship, international transportation costs and catering costs. Please check pricing with the organiser at the time of booking.

UK Programme

MRI in Practice 4 day Programme

Our programme has been developed over 25 years to provide a staged learning approach. It takes delegates through the fundamental principles of MRI in a logical order where lectures build on what has gone before. All you need to know about MRI in just four days.
On days 01-03 delegates can look forward to a delicious two-course lunch at a local gastro-pub. On day 04 we offer a working lunch in response to delegate feedback. This allows an earlier departure for delegates who have long journeys, or flight connections, without sacrificing course content.

  • I already have a good knowledge of MRI I don't need to do the "basics" (click here)

    Our research suggests that radiographers who have been scanning for a number of years may well have a good clinical knowledge of MRI, but typically know very little about the underpinning principles. We also get applications from people who have attended courses by other providers and have not quite had the experience they wanted. However our course is designed to be a four day course and is unlikely to map against any other courses of this type.
    The 30-question quiz below will give you a pretty good indication about your knowledge of the basics. If you score more than 20 you are doing well - any less than that and you would definitely benefit from our FULL course. All of the topics in the quiz relate to the content we cover in days 01 and 02.

In our recent research, radiographers who gave themselves a 10/10 score for MRI expertise achieved a test score of…

…slightly lower than the test score from radiographers who gave themselves a modest 1/10 for MRI expertise!

The World’s Biggest MRI Course - at Home in the UK


The MRI in Practice Course is presented about 6 times throughout the year in the UK.
You can see all of our upcoming events on the Dates page.

The courses are delivered in partnership with Cobalt Health in Cheltenham, who organise and host all of our UK courses.
Cobalt are a registered charity, who provide State-of-the-Art diagnostic imaging, using the very latest MRI scanners, including a 3T high-field system, a 1T open, and a 1.5T mobile. This means we have access to some of the very latest MRI scanners, right on site at the course venue.
Cobalt have created an airy, comfortable new teaching room, at Linton House in Cheltenham with state-of-the-art presentation equipment. Coffee, soft-drinks and snacks are provided all-day long and on days 1-3 we all bus off to a fabulous gastro-pub for a hot lunch. On day 4, in response to delegate feedback, we offer a working-lunch. This allows us to move the final lecture to an earlier slot which means delegates can avoid the rush hour when making their journey home.

Another major advantage for us in partnering with a registered charity, such as Cobalt, is that we can now offer a course that is completely free from ties to private imaging or training companies. Unlike some of our would-be competitors, this allows us to offer a truly independent, completely generic MRI course, where the proceeds go to good causes - including funding medical research - rather than into the coffers of a private “Learning Company”.

If you wish to learn more about the Cobalt appeal, and their good work, please visit their web site here.
