Your safety and comfort are of utmost importance to us. Below we outline our safety and hygiene initiatives.

STUDENT FAQ'S

Q: How are you handling spatial distancing?

To comply with spatial distancing, we are reducing capacity to 50% with every other chair left empty. This allows maximum distance between clients, while students will be wearing additional PPE outlined below. To handle these capacity constraints, we are operating classes in two 4.5-hour uninterrupted shifts. The morning shift runs 08:00-12:30, and the afternoon shift runs 13:30-18:00.

If you have been ill with COVID symptoms please notify us and isolate for 7 days. We will do our best to catch you up on your training upon return. If you have any underlying health conditions then please notify us.
