We have over the last two months being adjusting to the “new normal” that is life under the cloud of COVID-19. I want to take this opportunity to update you on how the institute is operating in these unprecedented times. Our key focus is on ensuring the safety of staff, partners and customers and as always, we remain committed to our learners and members with our high level of customer service.
Our office remains closed and our staff are working from home. Fortunately, we have always operated a flexible working policy so all of the necessary processes and technologies are already in place for us to be able to do this effectively. On our website is a list of email contacts for each department, these are continually monitored.
Higher Certificate in Business, Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Due to the cloud-based nature of our key systems, The Higher Certificate in Business, Logistics and Supply Chain Management worked virtual classrooms until the end of the academic year. Looking forward to September when we recommence classes, plans are in place that should the need arise we can commence with online classes on 12 Sept 2020, it is hoped that this will not be necessary.
ADR & DGSA Exams
All scheduled ADR Exams have been cancelled until further notice. As previously stated, our key focus is on ensuring the safety of staff, partners, and customers. This is our guiding principal in relation to all our examinations. Once it is safe to commence examinations, we will. We are working with our examination centres to ensure that when it is safe to recommence examinations that we will be in a position to examine all those who need these examinations.
TM CPC Exams
All scheduled TM CPC Exams have been cancelled until further notice.
