All meeting rooms have been refurbished to comply with the RIVM 1,5 meters distance rule. During the training fixed meeting rooms are assigned to each group. Extra cleaning is also organised, especially focusing on points of contact like doorknobs, tables, etc.
When more groups are using the training facility at the same time, we ensure they cross paths as little as possible. Fixed walking routes have been established and breaks have been scheduled. Necessary guidelines regarding catering and hotel stays have also been implemented.
Our training groups never exceed the maximum of a total of 30 people inside. You will be in a group of a maximum of nine, fourteen or eighteen people depending on the size of the meeting room. We make sure not too many people are present in a training group. Trainings go ahead with a minimum of six participants.
Together we build a safe training environment, That’s why we ask you to assume responsibility. We would like to agree on several things with you as a participant.
During training, our groups have fixed meeting rooms and break-out rooms at their disposal. Inside the premises face masks aren’t obligatory. When you move between rooms or to another location, or if you are in public spaces, you are supposed to wear face masks. This means on your way to your room, or when you visit the coffee corner, go to lunch, etc.
Clear instructions are available on our training locations. Furthermore we ask you to take group members’ wishes into account. Together we will have a safe training.
The moment you become ill during the training, you are asked to leave and contact the GGD to have yourself tested. We will contact you on how to complete the training course.
