In-Person Courses & Training Resume!
We are thrilled to announce that all In-Person training courses have resumed. See our “Courses ” page for the just released schedule of courses. We are continuing to closely monitor the BC Public Health Orders, BC Government phased reopening plans and industry best practices.
Mandatory Mask Requirements (Updated September 8/21): In keeping with the new BC Public Health Orders, effective August 25, 2021 masks will be mandatory all persons* in public spaces and training rooms at the Pacific Safety Center Ltd whenever training is being conducted. Students can provide their own masks or use one of our complimentary disposable non-medical masks. In the interest of being heard, and as per Public Health Order “Face Coverings (COVID-19) – September 2, 2021“, the instructor is not required to wear a mask while instructing, but he/she is required to maintain a 2 metre distance while instructing, or, if unable to maintain 2 metres, must wear a mask.
*People who cannot wear a mask or who cannot put on or remove a mask without the assistance of others are exempt. A person may not be able to wear a mask for a psychological, behavioral or health condition, or due to a physical, cognitive or mental impairment or other similar reason as per the Order of the Provincial Health Officer “Face Coverings (COVID-19) – September 2, 2021“.
In addition to the provincial face mask requirements, our open enrollment courses continue to limit class size to 50% of normal, have individual desks or tables with hand sanitizer for each participant, have HEPA air purifiers in room, regularly clean and disinfect high touch areas and follow other Covid-19 prevention best practices.
Proof Of Vaccination Requirement (updated Sept 7, 2021) : Today, September 7, 2021 BC’s Public Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry released more detailed information on the Proof Vaccination Requirements that are effective Sept 13, 2021. As you may know, under the Proof of Vaccination Public Health Order, all Pacific Safety Center Ltd in-person training courses fall under the category of “workshops”. The new Public Health Order specifies that only “organized indoor events with 50 or more people (e.g., wedding receptions, organized parties, conferences, workshops)” will be required to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination to allow entry or attendance. As all in-person training courses being offered by the Pacific Safety Center have a maximum of 9 to 24 people (maximum attendance varies by course and size of venue) proof vaccination will not be required to attend any courses currently offered by the Pacific Safety Center Ltd.
