Training during Level 3 of the National Lockdown

Under the current circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, SARETEC staff will work mostly remotely and the office will be closed to walk-in guests unless advised otherwise.

However, SARETEC will continue to provide training within the parameters set by the published National Covid-19 protocols.

Please note: SARETEC is currently reviewing government and CPUT guidance to ensure we are offering the best possible Covid safe training and that the scheduled course on the website is subject to change.

SARETEC will continue to monitor the situation and will provide you with any updates that could affect our operations.

Stay safe.
