COVID-19 / LIVE-STREAMING INFORMATION:

The current COVID-19 situation in Australia gives us confidence that the courses will be able to be delivered face-to-face in Noosa, and the majority of, if not all, states should be able to attend. 

However, we acknowledge the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation and its ability to quickly change the freedom to travel and attend meetings. Therefore, we will be setting up a live stream of the courses. Live streaming will only be made available to registered students who are unable to attend in person due to:

- Travel restrictions, border closures, lockdowns by the government
- Travel restrictions by their employer
- COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms at the time of the event.

Live streaming is not simply an alternative means to attend for convenience. Live streaming may have some limited capability for the student to interact or participate in group work. It will only be provided for already registered students for unavoidable or late notice emergency situations. If a student must attend via live stream, a partial refund will be issued to the student following the event.

For full details, please read the Cancellation Policy on the event registration page.
