Certified playground safety inspector courses - australia

We take our students health and welfare very seriously and on the basis of current WHO and Health Department advice for public facing business operations and travel restrictions we are implementing a dedicated COVID-19 health policy and rescheduling all our courses to the start of August onwards. Our duty of care is paramount and we have not taken this decision lightly, this policy has been developed to protect students, staff and the most vulnerable members in our communities.
Our venues have been tentatively booked for upcoming courses which all abide to social distancing rules and advise from the Australian Government.
As this is an evolving situation, we will continue to keep you informed as we reevaluate and learn more on the issue. Please keep an eye out for emails and information on this website.
