OUR RESPONSE TO
COVID-19

 

Since the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak began, we have been implementing measures to protect our customers, their communities and society as a whole.

We are dedicated to providing a safe environment so you can feel confident when booking and attending your next training course with us.

Flexible terms and conditions

We understand that guidance and advice on the pandemic may change unexpectedly, so we have modified our terms and conditions in order to be able to operate as flexibly as possible should your circumstances change at short notice.

Safety measures at our training venues

Our regular training venues have implemented a number of changes so that we can continue to provide you with a safe environment when attending one of our face-to-face training courses:

We also continue to deliver consultancy and training in house, at your premises or preferred location, following all Government and regional COVID-19 guidelines. Please contact us at training@imeche.org for further information on how we can deliver training and support directly to your site.

Frequently asked questions

What do I do if I present symptoms of COVID-19?

If you present any symptoms relating to COVID-19, please do not travel to attend face-to-face training at any of our venues. Instead stay home and follow the latest Government guidance.

We also ask you that you let us know as soon as possible by emailing training@imeche.org so we can transfer you to an alternative date.

If the training is taking place at a location organised by your employer, please seek advice from them directly as we will be following their requirements.

What happens if the trainer presents COVID-19 symptoms?

If any of our trainers presents any COVID-19 symptoms, for your safety, we will either find a suitable replacement trainer or postpone the training and invite you to attend it at an alternative date.

Do I need to wear PPE or face coverings during the course?

The training rooms will be set up to allow for physical distancing as per latest Government guidance, and disinfected after each use, so you may choose not to wear face covering during the training.

We recommend wearing face coverings when moving around the premises or in indoor communal areas where the layout makes it difficult to maintain physical distancing. If you are exempt or not able to wear a face covering, please let us know.

If the training is taking place at a location organised by your employer, please seek advice from them directly as we will be following their requirements.

Will you still be providing catering?

We will still offer lunch and refreshments for our face-to-face courses, but instead of a buffet style lunch, we will provide you individual packed lunches that can be customised to your dietary requirements (please let us know of dietary requirements two weeks before the training is due to happen).

The trainer will be on hand to reassure and answer any questions you may have, whilst maintaining physical distancing and heightened cleaning procedures.

If the training is taking place at a location organised by your employer, please seek advice from them directly as we will be following their requirements.
