Covid-19 Policies & Procedures

Amendments for courses after 20th August 2020

The one way system has now been removed from our training centre in line with the relaxation of Covid-19 guidelines. We are still big advocates of the 2 Metre rule but where this is not possible we are asking our candidates to be mindful of others and keep their distance at 1 metre +.

If anyone feels uncomfortable at any time there are Masks & Gloves available on request.

Our Trainers are kept up to date with the ever changing procedures and precautions so if anyone is unsure they can ask them as well as any of the Livius Training team.

Local Lockdown

Following the regional lockdown regulations that the government has now introduced to help with the control of COVID-19, we ask that anyone travelling from an area that has been put into lockdown by the authorities do not attend our centre. Under these circumstances we are happy to move your training to another date.
