Below are courses that we operate in CBD locations in
Brisbane, Melbourne, Newcastle and Sydney
What makes us different? Every student gets their own steam wand/group handle for the day. There is no waiting. We have one trainer for every 6 students.
All barista courses are still proceeding as planned.
We have exceptional infection control measures in place and have been advised by a senior member of NSW Public Health and a medical specialist on these policies that we have in place.
Classes have been limited in size.
The 4mx4m and 1.5m social distancing guidelines apply in all our classes.
Each student has their own espresso machine.
We encourage hand sanitisation as people enter and before they leave (and whenever they like during the course).
Our trainers have been instructed to space chairs out, have breaks every 2 hours, sanitise all surfaces, door handles etc with Viraclean (or equivalent) at each break and air the room during break.
There are gloves that you can use for your assessments.
Some of the assessments have been modified as you will see on the day.
We have a sign on the door reminding people not to enter if they have travelled internationally in the last 14 days (these notifications are also on our websites and are in the terms and conditions that students must acknowledge before they can be enrolled).
Our staff have had professional development on maintaining their own personal hygiene and on Coronavirus in general
