Safety Management Measures at Equinet Academy
*Updated on 25 March 2022*
As part of the recent updates to the easing of community Safe Management Measures (SMMs) announced on 24 March, we would like to inform you that in-person classes after 29 March 2022 will proceed as scheduled. Additional Covid-19 precautionary measures will be introduced to ensure the safety of all participants at our training centre.
Every classroom will now be equipped with 2 air purifiers to provide fresh filtered air to trainees. The main air purifier is rated for coverage of up to 70sqm and has built-in UV sterilisation capabilities.
Regarding meals at the centre, per SSG regulations, training providers are not allowed to serve food, and trainees are strongly discouraged from eating in the classroom where training is conducted. As such, all trainees are advised to eat out.
Trainees who bring packed meals from home or who are unable to eat out may consume their food at our designated meal areas should there be spare classrooms available. They will be designated as meal areas but the 1-metre safe distancing requirement must be adhered to at all times. Windows in the designated eating areas will remain open to maximise air circulation.
If you are feeling unwell or experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms, please do not hesitate to contact us to reschedule your course and we will be more than willing to assist.
