Is my course still running? For any courses due to take place between 23rd March and 1st July you should already have been contacted regarding that training. Please let our team know if you would like to rearrange your training for a later date.

For any courses due to run from 1st July onwards, these courses are taking place, however there will be a reduction in the capacity of these courses to maintain social distancing. In addition many of our practical courses will be amended to enable safe use of our practical training area where appropriate.

Anyone booked on practical courses (W017, W024, W028, W036, W037, W038) will be contacted separately with details of course changes and given the possibility to amend their booking.

What should I do if I am in a High Risk group? Please contact us if you are considered at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 according to the government guidance and we will be happy to rearrange your training for later in the year. A full list of high risk groups can be found here section 9.

When is the next available date for my course? You can find this information on our website course pages.
