**Latest Update**


Tuesday, 17 March 2020 13:30


In line with the Government measures put in place to manage the transmission of COVID-19, we have conducted a risk assessment and have initiated steps to ensure that we remain semi-operational, without compromising the health of our staff, students, customers, and suppliers. 

 

We have decided on the following actions:

 

Site Closure:

As a preventative action we will close all our physical sites as of Wednesday, 18 March until Sunday, 29 March 2020. This in effect means that we will not allow any staff or visitors to enter any of our premises until further notice. 

 

Online Support:

Many of our staff will be working remotely, and will be available online.   Should you wish to contact us, please log a ticket via our Contact Us page on our website.  Our phone lines will be down for the duration of the closure. Please bear with us as our turn-around times may be a bit slower, but we will be making every effort to attend to all queries.

 

April Exams

The April exams have been cancelled.  All entries for April will be automatically postponed to the next available sitting at no charge. 

 

Dispatch of certificates

We will not be dispatching any parcels or certificates during this time. We will put in measures to address the backlog once operations return to normal.  

 

We would like to reassure all our students, providers and business partners that we are committed to providing you 

with support and assistance during this period and will put measures in place to catch-up on time lost.

We have established a working committee to initiate and action measures to minimise the impact it may have on our employees, members and providers. 


Please bear with us, while we determine the best course of action. Once this has been done, we will update this article with the relevant actions.
