Catching Sector

COVID 19 UPDATE – We have carried out COVID 19 Risk Assessments on all courses and venues. With the current lockdown we are unable to run courses but hope to able to start training again in Spring 2021, Subject to government guidelines. Initially we will run Safety Awareness and gradually add other courses. Unfortunately, due to the extra requirements needed to be COVID 19 safe and lower number of candidates being allowed on each course we will have to increase our charges for each course. Once we can get back to normal we will look at reducing them again.
