Looks good. I did my training with SPIDIR see their website for a course starting in September. spidir.org.uk.
Yes, this course is really an out-crop of SPIDIR. Rev. Joanna Gallant and her husband Nick Gallant now teach the SPIDIR training course for spiritual directors (which I also did myself). This is a sort of second year follow-on, with a particular emphasis on historical spiritual writers, looking at their writings, and applying it in practical direction situations.
Please note that this course will now be taught online, not in person (by popular demand): see https://www.ancientpathways-newperspectives.org/ (website as above)
