COVID variant considerations and  allowances 2022

This training  course is renowned for its experiential delivery, so the co-hort, which is usually capped at 8 will be reduced to 6 in 2022.  This maximises the opportunity to ensure 'physical' training weekends go ahead if COVID restrictions and considerations are raised  - the venue training rooms can  accommodate safe distancing  and effective ventilation with 6.
