-The course will take place at Strode College in Somerset, as part of their Summer Workshops.+It became clear that we cannot have confidence that things will have become safe enough, with restrictions lifted sufficiently, to run this course on the 2021 dates we had originally hoped. 
 +So we have taken the difficult decision to reschedule it yet again to the date in July as shown above. This is after the date when the government hopes to have lifted all restrictions, so we are all hoping we can run the course then. 
 +All bookings for postponed dates in 2020 and 2021 will be honoured for this one. If you already have such a booking, you will be contacted by email with latest updates.  
 +This course is for those already familiar with the basics of CBUS, who would like to take it further. 
 +The course will take place in the “Goods Shed” meeting room at the Rushden Transport Museum & RailwayRushden  
 +Station, Northamptonshire. 
 +The course will start with arrivals from 4pm on Friday evening and then takes place over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday). 
 +We also have an optional follow-on practical workshop day on Monday 19th July. This will be a practical workshop day for you to apply the knowledge learnt over the weekend. You can work on whatever you wish, with assistance from the tutors, such as working on your own CBUS implementation or revisiting certain course subjects
 This course assumes that you have attended the Introduction to CBUS course, or that you already have a good understanding of the basics of CBUS, building modules and getting them working. This course assumes that you have attended the Introduction to CBUS course, or that you already have a good understanding of the basics of CBUS, building modules and getting them working.
