    ATO & ATRR courses vs. pandemic

    ATO/ATRR courses It is with great annoyance that we have to announce that the ATO and ATRR courses in November 2020 are canceled due to the global pandemic.

    We have been looking for an online solution that S2 has done with great success, but after talking with several course participants and listening to their wishes, we have decided to postpone the courses to 2021 and do it live in Copenhagen.

    Dates will be released later this year but before we can determine any dates we would like to follow the situation on the pandemic.

    If you wish to attain the online version we will of course help you get signed up and if you are looking for a refund we are also helpful in that regard.

    Thank you for the great interest in our courses and thanks to Scandic Palace Hotel in Copenhagen for being most helpful from the very start.

    We hope that the course can be held in this beautiful hotel as planned but now in 2021. SECON, security & consulting and S2 is looking forward to welcoming you to our courses in 2021.

    Everyone who was enrolled in the course has been notified.
