COVID-19 Level 2 & Workshop Delivery Statement
Educational events such as workshops are permitted at Level 2. From a teaching perspective, participants are encouraged to attend the face to face workshop. However it is understandable that people may be hesitant of attending training events with people from outside their known "bubbles."
TMTC is pleased therefore to offer the majority of workshops in two formats. (See Online schedule for workshops being offered online)
Option 1: Face to face group workshop at a venue
Option 2: Online workshop via Zoom
Option 1: Face to face format
For those attending a workshop, TMTC is committed to providing a training event that maximises the learning experience in an environment where physical distancing and infection prevention and control requirements are met.
You can expect:
Workshop seating will be with 1 metre gap between participants. Venue permiting, the preferred set up will be classroom format
Workshop registration numbers will be limited based on the size of the room so to ensure physical distancing can be met
Venues will be undertaking extra sterilisation and cleaning activities during the day.
Workshop catering will be served in accordance to the COVID-19 recommendation
Option 2: Online Format
Participants will participate in the workshop from either work or home. To participate in the online workshops participants must have:
A reliable and reasonably fast internet connection
The Zoom app downloaded onto the computer
A suitable camera, microphone and headphones
The group dynamics and learning process of an interactive online workshop is different to a face to face workshop. While the content is the same, the delivery of the content differs at times to accommodate these differences. The technology allows for questions from participants in real time and small group discussions.
Course Minimum Number: 10 Course Maximum Numbers: 30
Places in each workshop is limited. A waiting list will be established once the course is full.

Why choose TMTC courses
