ITEC courses continue despite COVID-19

ITEC have adapted quickly to the new COVID-19 situation:

  • Exam formats have been adapted so that we can still hold exams – via Zoom.
  • All our current ITEC courses are now coming to completion via Zoom.  We have not cancelled, or even delayed, any ITEC courses.
  • The next courses will commence soon via Zoom.
  • We will deliver all the theory training first, as this works very well over Zoom.   Theory classes are lectures, so you can get just as much learning via Zoom as you can in a class.
  • We have worked out procedures for teaching the practical skills via Zoom.  These have been approved by ITEC.
  • ITEC now allow all exams via Zoom.
