BUSINESS AS USUAL… JUST A LITTLE DIFFERENT!
The Victorian Government has advised that training organisations must undertake their study remotely during Stage 4 of the state’s fight against Coronavirus. Therefore, aligning with Government guidelines, bestchance Training will continue to deliver our courses remotely and we will commence new courses remotely as planned.
The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, so we’ve implemented our own measures to minimise the risk of COVID-19.
Our training locations will be closed for the duration of Stage 4 to minimise the need for students and staff to travel. In addition, all classes will be delivered remotely via Zoom videoconferencing – which is free and easy to use on any laptop or tablet device. Our face to face classes will resume, accordingly aligned with the Victorian Government guidelines.
This is a difficult time for everyone, but you shouldn’t let it stand in the way of obtaining your qualification. And we’re here to help you achieve this.
