  1. 1. Please confirm whether attendance at multiple workshops is allowed, noting: the introduction to the workshop schedules states “You are welcome to book into just one or all these seminars”.While the last line of the article states “To register for one or more of these sessions…..”
    2. Please confirm the location(s) at which the workshops will be held.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi David,

    You can register for all four sessions. They are all run at COTA Vic, Level 4, 533 Little Lonsdale St. in CBD. If you are using public transport the nearest train station is Flagstaff Station (we are about two-three minutes walk from the station, off William St.)
