Update March 2020: All our training courses are currently and until further notice provided online with a live trainer. Our terms of delivery have been somewhat relaxed in connection with COVID19 measures: article 7: “postpone” and article 14: “cancel”, but we cannot do otherwise than to maintain these in general for our continuity. If you are of the opinion that you cannot attend the sessions, you must notify us in writing as early as possible (see article 14). Only radical changes to the COVID19 measures will be taken into account, whereby you still have to report absence. In all cases we will try to find the most suitable solution on a case-by-case basis.
