Health and safety protocols for onsite sessions:

IFS Institute will be following the guidance of the training venue and/or relevant government agencies with respect to health and safety protocols for the onsite portions of this training. As such, it may be necessary for all training participants and staff to observe health and safety protocols at the training site (for example, wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, being vaccinated) if required by the training venue and/or relevant government agencies. As has been the case previously, required protocols can change, and can be imposed or lifted at any time before the training starts, and while the training is in session.

Given your own personal circumstances, if you are unable, or do not wish to abide by the protocols that may be required for this training, or if you may need or want something other than these protocols, we suggest you consider a fully online training.
