COVID-19 Update – Lockdown 5 Extended

Hi Everyone,

As many predicted, lockdown has been extended. Earlier today, the Victorian Government announced that we will come out of lockdown at 11:59pm on Tuesday 27th July.

We’re reaching out directly to all immediately impacted customers, noting that only the following training will be conducted during the lockdown:

  • High-Risk Work Licenses (DG, LF and WP)
  • Construction Induction (White Card)

If you didn’t catch my last post, here’s the rules that apply to adult education. I know it might be a bit boring, but please have a close read before sending your staff to any form of training over the next few days.

[T]he conduct of essential adult education services pertaining to the following occupations and activities for:

  • training and assessment for infection control, high-risk work licenses and high-risk work credentials and construction induction (white card), that ensure workplace and public safety in permitted work premises or for permitted workers; or
