Reopening Update

We are pleased to announce that we are currently planning for a safe reopening of the EPIT training facility on Monday 1st June, after risk assessing all of our courses and implementing the necessary measures in line with Government recommendations.

Our primary focus remains on the safety of our delegates and staff, therefore we have upgraded our centre and will be changing the way in which we deliver training to prevent further spread of COVID-19.
