Safety of our training participants and our trainer is the utmost important thing for us for our training courses.

Hence, we are offering the first part of the training online through e-learning so that it can be done from the comfort of your own home and that way you will only have to come in for 3.5 hours to complete the practical session. As a result, this reduces your risk of exposure by 50%.

Some other precautions we are taking include:

  • Reduced class sizes to maintain 2 meters between participants.
  • Guided equipment training without direct contact with other participants or the instructor.
  • Increased access to hand hygiene.
  • Administering health screening questionnaires prior to starting the training.
  • Following strict protocols on frequent cleaning and disinfection.
