To prevent the risk of infection of the Coronavirus (COVID - 19) - Industry Training Consultants have reacted to the practise of social distancing, by making adjustments to the classroom to create more space between people and their desks.

Industry Training Consultants will work with the venue conference centres to increase the cleaning of the classroom, toilets, common areas, door handles and equipment.
