COVID-19 update

Due to the escalation of the COVID-19 developments and the restrictions being placed on travel, Risk Training has taken the decision to provide our May, June and July training courses virtually.

The decision to move remotely has not been taken lightly, but our utmost priority is to safeguard the wellbeing of all our delegates, speakers and staff.

We are hopeful that we will be able to return to our in-person events later this year, however as this unprecedented situation is changing every day, we remain watchful but also focused on delivering this much anticipated course.
