ATO & ATRR courses vs. pandemic
Due to the special situation that we are in with a worldwide pandemic, we get a lot of questions about our courses. Will they be held as scheduled, will there be major changes, and what happens if canceled?
First of all, let me answer the most important question: Yes, the courses are still kept as planned. Of course, we will follow the COVID-19 situation closely, but for the moment we are very positive as the pandemic becomes somewhat more under control.
Every day, more and more countries are opening their borders and restrictions are loosening, so if this good development continues, there will be absolutely no problem in completing the courses.
However, there may be slight changes and rules about sanitazion and classroom seating, but this will not affect the outcome of the courses.
If the situation gets worse, we are ready to cancel the courses or change dates of the courses. In this case there will be a full refund on the payment for the course and you will be given priority on the next course in Denmark.
If you have any questions about the course, please do not hesitate to contact us
