TC27: THE PROCEDURAL AND TECHINCAL ISSUES OF SECTION 20

SUSPENSION OF ARMA TRAINING FOR MARCH AND APRIL 2020

After careful monitoring of the development and the spread of Covid-19 taking into account the health and safety of our members and employee’s, we at ARMA have taken the decision to suspend all training courses with immediate effect until the end of April 2020.

For those who have booked places to attend our training courses we will refund payment back to the card used at the time of booking.

New courses dates for all our training courses will be arranged in due course, and we will circulate these by the usual means which does mean that you will need to re-book to attend the training courses.

I am sure that you will also support us in this difficult decision that we at ARMA needed to prioritise the health and safety of all and minimise the spread of the virus.

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause

Should you have any further queries please contact us at training@arma.org.uk
