About this course
Following the government’s guidance, from 4 April we will not be requiring delegates to undertake any testing before attending their course. However, it is strongly recommended that face coverings are worn when in enclosed spaces and where social distancing is not possible. There may also be some courses which still require additional PPE - this will be provided as appropriate.
While the requirement for testing has been relaxed, we ask that students/delegates only attend their course if they are fully well to do so - this is to ensure that fellow students/delegates and staff are protected and courses can continue to run.
If you have any issues or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
