Mitigating the Risk of Covid-19

We want to ensure our training courses are held as safely as possible for all staff and trainees.  By ensuring course numbers are limited and all attendees are well distanced, surfaces are regularly cleaned and that there is plenty of ventilation, we are taking all measures possible to limit the risk of exposure to Covid-19 on our premises.  

We politely ask that attendees take all possible steps to limit risk to themselves and others by respecting social distancing where possible and using hand sanitiser.  Although there is no legal reaquirement to self isolate, we ask that if you have any Covid symptoms or any known recent contact with somone with Covid, then please do not attend – we will happily accomodate you on a future course.

At EDSL we regularly run two training courses; Tas Engineering and Tas Systems.  

In order to get the most out of the software, the training courses are a pre-requisite to receiving support for the corresponding applications.
