At IMNZ, we are closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation and its impact on our learners. Our top priority, as always, is the health and safety of our students, which is why we are putting robust processes in place.

This blog post provides you information on courses, the impacts on you and what your options are.

Doing right by our clients  

We have updated our policy allowing trainees and businesses to postpone their training with us for up to six months at no extra cost. Whether you’re sick, in self-isolation, can’t get away from the office due to understaffing, or are just plain nervous – we do understand. 

All you need to do is notify us in writing via enquiries@imnz.net.nz that you would like to postpone as a result of the coronavirus, and then book yourself in for training at a later date. 

Should you come to class? 

If you are feeling unwell, or showing potential symptoms of coronavirus such as coughing, having a temperature and shortness of breath, please remain at home and do not come into class. If you have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, please do not come into class.  

Just get in touch and let us know your situation and we’ll issue you a credit to train at a later date. Take the time to focus on yourself and get better. 

Will courses be cancelled? 

Across all workplaces and classrooms in New Zealand, the spread of the virus and its impact is still evolving. What that means is that we are unable to make any guarantees about courses running in the future. What we will do in the meantime is continue running our courses while it is still safe to do so and with sensible processes in place. 

If a course is cancelled as a result of the coronavirus, you will receive a credit and be given the option to rebook your training within six months of the cancellation. We understand this may be inconvenient for some people, however we believe it is our duty to prioritise your health and safety above all else. 

Will we keep you updated? 

Please be assured that we will keep you updated. This is an evolving situation and it’s important to us that you know what’s happening and how any changes will affect you. If we have any further updates on your training in the coming weeks and months, we will be in touch to let you know.
