CNet can confirm that ALL Remote Attendance programs are going ahead as planned. If customers are registered to attend Classroom-based programs we are still able to deliver the same learning experience via Remote Attendance*.

CNet would like to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to minimise disruption to our customers and minimise the risk of spreading the infection. We are continuing to monitor the situation and continuing to review the information updates from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) and follow the UK’s latest government guidance -

The safety of our learners and Instructors is of paramount importance to CNet and we will continue to monitor and assess the situation and will keep all learners updated on the actions we take. If there are any changes to program dates the CNet team will be in touch to discuss this with you directly.

* Remote Attendance Programs

Live and Interactive Classroom Learning Remotely.

For the last three years we have been delivering programs via ‘Remote Attendance’ (currently 42% of our learners are remote attendees), we anticipated this would be driven by the need to operate in a more sustainable and environmentally sensitive way, we obviously did not anticipate COVID-19.

We have a full schedule of program dates in most time zones across the world and are able to deliver fifteen live classes simultaneously across the world. So, it’s business as usual for CNet, we can deliver our entire schedule (excluding the CNCI®, COPT® and CIIT® programs) by way of Remote Attendance utilising our Smart Rooms.

The CNet Remote Attendance learning experience is different from many others, it is live and fully interactive with both the Instructor and fellow attendees wherever they are in the world. For those who haven't experienced Remote Attendance we have created demonstration sessions and urge our customers to attend a session to be reassured of the high quality learning experience. See demonstration dates here.
