  • Under the current situation with COVID-19, we ask that anyone that has travelled anywhere to an interstate hotspot or overseas must not visit our training centre for at least 14 days of self isolation after return to Queensland/Australia. In addition to this, we will comply with any future government advice.
  • Anyone who has been in close contact with someone (such as a family member) who has been to an interstate hotspot or overseas, should not visit our training centre for 14 days. We also advise that those who have someone self isolating in their household that they too should defer attendance to FRA classes.
  • Any student who is unwell on the day of attendance must defer to another date.
  • Any student presenting as unwell or with flu like symptoms will be denied entry to the class and will be deferred to a later date.

Note: Where our clients' contemplate on-site training, a risk analysis will be conducted to ensure that the health and well being of our staff and participants is assured.

We are confident that these arrangements will make your day safe and enjoyable.
