Training & Covid -19

Training & Covid -19

Active Training Network Ltd as a training provider we are fully committed to the safety of learners who attend any face to face or blended learning in the  current climate with Covid 19.

Due to the nature of our training its not always possible to provide remote training due to the practical aspect of the training and assessment process.

Therefore we are ensuring we are compliant with the Government Guidelines, HSE guidelines and Awarding Organisations guidance when we are delivering our courses.

We want learners to feel confident and safe in the learning environment and gain the maximum benefit, are up to date with the current practices and what they need to apply in the workplace.

Below are the links to the guidance form the Awarding Organisations we are involved with.

These are changing all the time so we will endeavour to update the information when any changes take place.
