With the health and safety of both our staff and clients being paramount Altius closed all our training centers in early March 2020 due to the risk associated with the Covid 19 virus and its transmission.
We have been monitoring the situation in each of the six areas in which we operate and regularly consulting medical experts on when we could safely resume training. Given on this advice we have decided that once any mandatory orders have been lifted and the State has been showing a decline in infection rates for a minimum of five consecutive weeks, we will look at re-opening on a limited basis to start with.
Based on this advice we plan to run a course in our Las Vegas center at the end of May providing that the rate of infection in Nevada is still declining. That will mean Nevada will have had over seven consecutive weeks of declining numbers.
All being well in June we will run a course in both Cape Town and New Orleans assuming those areas are still showing a decline in infection numbers.
Once courses resume, we will be continuing with our mitigation measures including;
• Limiting all courses to 50% of normal size depending on the venue.
• The allocation of sanitized equipment to each candidate which is not to be shared with others.
• The cleaning of all equipment at the beginning and end of each day.
• Allocation of training dummies to a candidate for exclusive use and then sanitizing them at the beginning and end of each day.
• The wearing of face masks.
• All “paperwork” moved online and completed electronically
Aside from the above we have introduced steps to ensure all those attending our courses have access to facilities to ensure they are able to keep their hands etc. clean at all times. We have given instructions to our training staff on what symptoms to look out for and will be monitoring the situation closely.
If you have any questions or would like to be informed by us when courses will begin please contact us through this website or email email@example.com
