Important update from Chris at illuminate


Following my previous announcements regarding my numerous health failings over the last 18 months, I am pleased to report that I am now resuming a limited amount of illuminate work.


I am also retiring from my ‘proper’ day job in August after which I intend to focus a lot more of my time to illuminate.

From the continued interest and requests from you, I am currently concentrating on delivering the ‘Person with Specialist Knowledge’ requirement (course and exam) until early 2025.

Course availability will be limited so I intend to make best use of this time to maximise course throughput and am prioritising outstanding commitments for block/group bookings and host provided venues running up to the November season.

As soon as my time allows I intend to run at least two illuminate hosted open courses, one North, one South and will email out expressions of interest as this arises.

If you have already contacted me directly over the last few months, my sincere apologies for any delay in replying and I am working through all existing enquiries. 

Thank you all for your patience and good wishes and please bear with me as illuminate starts to get back up to speed.


The illuminate web site has moved


Unfortunately, my web-host who have served me so well since inception, have ceased support of the platform on which my website is hosted.

My web domain was also hijacked but after a rather expensive legal battle, has now been returned to me!

I have hastily knocked together this website as a temporary measure to maintain my web presence though it may well become a permanent fixture with a little modification in places.

Some of the previous features and content are not available on this new platform though some may be reintroduced over time.

Please note the illuminate contact number has also changed.


The course certification checker is no longer available on this new platform but the check can be requested directly to illuminate by individuals, Company owners or clients by submitting a request via the Contact illuminate page.
