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.
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.
Please check with our local organiser when booking for any pricing updates.
Essentials (2 days) £410 (with early booking discount £391.50)
Additional Concepts (2 days) £410 (with early booking discount £391.50)
Complete course (3 days) £650 (with early booking discount £620.50)
Complete course (4 days) £715 (with early booking discount £681.50)
The price of the course includes lunches, beverages and snacks but does not include accommodation. Delegates can find reasonably priced hotels and guest houses within easy distance of the venue.
A complimentary copy of the latest edition of the book MRI in Practice is usually provided.
*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.
This is the traditional version of the course that has been running since 1992. In the UK (only) delegates may choose to attend the course in two blocks (2 days each), or undertake the whole course in one block (4 days).
The first two days cover the underpinning fundamentals of MRI and are essential for everyone - irrespective of previous experience.
The second two days cover additional important concepts.

This is a new adaptation of the course available from 2019. Delegates attend the entire course over three days. The content is identical to the four-day course, but each day runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm. The only other adaptation is that there is no requirement for a revision session. This is because there are no delegates returning to the course - which is the case for the four-day version (see above).

MRI in Practice is CPD endorsed by the Society and College of Radiographers.
The Certificate of Endorsement states that this course may support outcomes:
01. Practical skills
02. Knowledge base
03. Work safely
04. Legal/ethical frameworks or guidance
06. Manage knowledge/information
07. High-quality healthcare/education services
09. Inter-professional/agency working or learning
11. Workforce development or staff governance
18. Integration of education and employment
19. Evidence to support practice
If you are considering registering for an MRI course other than MRI in Practice, ask for evidence that they have CPD NOW endorsement and check how many of the above outcomes are supported. This is an important benchmark and without such it is likely that a course is not fit for purpose as a CPD resource.
