What strange times we are living through! Here at CL:AIRE we are still working, albeit from our various home offices. For obvious reasons, our face-to-face training for the next few weeks has been cancelled and all delegates on cancelled courses have been contacted and offered alternative dates. Should this situation continue, rest assured, we will contact those concerned.
In the meantime, in addition to getting that paperwork done or reading that report you've been intending to for a while, some CPD might be a useful way to spend this enforced 'stay at home' time. Check that your Asbestos Awareness certification is up-to-date and if not, have a look at our full course or the new refresher course. We also have other eLearning courses which are available 24/7.
You might want to consider writing up a Case Study. If you have an idea, project or technology that you would like to write about, please get in touch by raising a new Help Request via our Help Desk and if you think of other things that CL:AIRE can do to help you through this time, please don't hesitate to get in touch in the same way.
