Thanks very much for delivering such an excellent course. It was extremely helpful. It reassured me that our current thinking and opening intentions are on the right track. More importantly, it brought to my attention some areas and procedures that hadn’t occurred to us. There was a lot to take in and we will certainly be making use of the documentation promised. – Rashid School for Boys, Dubai


I would like to thank everyone for this very valuable course. What Went Well – very knowledgeable presenters with great wealth of understanding of different regulations. Everything was relevant – just what was needed at this point prior to opening. We are all so focused on getting the learning environment read and sharing what we have done to make the school as safe as possible but the ‘what if’ scenario is just as vital. – Haileybury Astana School, Kazakhstan


The training was informative, case studies were good. A mitigation plan on the case studies is advisable to receive it. – The Arcadia School, Dubai


The case studies were very beneficial.  The content was varied and covered a wide scope. The lecturers were knowledgeable and the course presented well. That you will share documentation COVID ready with us, for e.g prepared press statements.
