Numerous FREE training courses hosted by FAAC's technical team

Our Courses will be resuming from September 2020. 
Please see our 2020 Training Calendar for availability of our courses and see below for any webinars that maybe of interest.

Training Course Procedure

After consultation with our health and safety consultants we felt that smaller groups would be better, so class sizes will be kept to max 6 attendees & 1 trainer.
For the safety of all our delegates we will be introducing a new safety protocol, please read the following and contact us prior to the course if you have any further concerns.

This includes:  

  • Ring intercom on arrival and then please either remain in your car and wait for the Trainer to contact you or wait outside the building until you are asked to enter.
  • Contactless temperature checks at entry of the premises.
  • Hand sanitiser placed around the venue for easy access and regular use, please use on entry and exit.
  • Digital copies on request of course documents emailed to delegates to avoid handing out printed versions
  • Increased cleaning throughout with particular attention paid to frequently touched areas such as door handles.
  • Social distancing - reminder signs on the walls.
  • Attendees restricted to Reception, Disabled toilet, Showroom & Training room.
  • Adequate spacing around desks to ensure a 2m distance is maintained
  • Please only use the disabled toilet marked for ‘Visitors only’, with automated wave facility.
  • Attendees encouraged to bring their own lunch and refreshments, we will only have basic snacks, tea, coffee, milk and water and a fridge for general use.
  • Suspended refund policy to allow for last minute cancellations due to onset of symptoms.
  • Masks will not be mandatory, but delegates may wear them if they wish.
