A: As a temporary measure, IWCF’s Board of Directors have approved the introduction of virtual classroom training. This solution allows us to accommodate the requirement for training during the COVID-19 pandemic, whilst maintaining our high standards and integrity. We are committed to collaborating with our accredited centres to ensure this can be delivered effectively to candidates globally.
Candidates must complete all assessments including practical assessments at an accredited centre once social distancing measures are lifted. There will be a maximum time of 90 days to complete assessments following training however this will be monitored in line with government advice regarding travel.
Accredited training centres can now apply to offer virtual classroom training to candidates. Accredited Centres can download the guidance and application information from our Members Login Area or can contact our accreditation team to request these documents.
As virtual training applications are approved, we will update our dedicated virtual training website page as well as our website locations map to show this as an additional delivery option. (On the map, you can search for them by using the the ‘Programmes’ filter and selecting ‘Virtual Training.’)
