As restrictions in Victoria are getting set to ease this Friday thanks to the amazing vaccination response of Australians we’re also getting prepared as we dust off the whiteboards, restock the gel and warm up the ultrasound machines.
We’re pretty excited that we’ll soon be able to connect in person and resume (appropriately distanced) face-to-face training.
Here’s what we’re doing.
We’re restarting Monday 25 October
As has been the case since this pandemic began, we continue to apply a range of measures to help keep our team, our patient models and you safe. These simply ensure the continuation of our focus on creating a safe and comfortable learning environment in this new age.
When you get to our learning HQ there will be:
- Controlled entry with contact tracing via the Services Victoria App for all visitors – including proof of vaccination. To expedite the process please ensure you have the most up to date version of the app and have linked this to your vaccination records. For instructions on how to do this click here…
- Reduced numbers of people allowed in our learning HQ at one time to support the requirements around physical distancing – both in classrooms and scan bays.
- Increased hygiene options available for all visitors.
- PPE utilisation.
- Increased environmental cleaning.
In addition to physical changes, we’ll be asking for behavioural changes too. If you or any of our team are (or are suspected as) unwell, the requirement for self-isolation and reporting will be mandatory. If you suspect someone is unwell, we’ll be encouraging peer support and compassionate communication.
But never fear, if you started a course and need to miss some due to COVID-19 our ‘Zedu Redo’ policy applies, so you can resit the same course for free within 12 months of the start date of your original booking.
While covid continues to present challenges, we’ll do everything we can to promote felixiblity, safety and comfort.
You can book with confidence
Uncertainty, unprecedented, unsettling. With travel, business and leave restrictions still in place we don’t want to be the reason for another COVID-19 related ‘un’.
Here’s what we’re doing.
For courses running before 31 December 2021, if your training plans are disrupted due to COVID-19 restrictions we’ll waive any course transfer charges associated with a change of date. If you need to cancel your course due to COVID-19, we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs. Similarly, if we are required to postpone due to COVID-19, we’ll transfer you to an alternative date of your choosing, provide a credit to be applied to another course/service for another time or a refund.
We want you to know that we’ve got you covered.
If you are champing at the bit to get ultrasound training, we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment. Course capacity over the coming few months will be reduced to meet social distancing protocols. Customers that have already been impacted by course postponement will be given priority access to current and any new course dates.
We’re scanning the horizon
Australians have done an amazing job over the past few months and we’re optimistic that we’re on a sustainable path to manage COVID-19.
We’re keeping our eyes and ears open, scanning the horizon to make sure we are up to date with the latest medical advice to ensure we can continue to bring you world-leading ultrasound education.
We look forward to confidently welcoming you back to our Melbourne learning HQ , so that you can go forward with ultrasound to be the difference for your patients.
See you soon
Suean and Mike
P.S. both of us would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to everyone from around the world that have sent messages of support and encouragement. We’ve been humbled by the many offers of assistance, which has kept our fires for education burning. We hope that someday soon we can repay you all by getting together in person to celebrate.
