COVID-19 Updates

12th May

The 5 Day Breakthrough Life Coaching Courses will resume at Alert Level 2, please see guidelines below. There may be additional requirements (such as reduced group sizes) put in place by individual venues. Book early to ensure your place.

Social Distancing

Students and trainers must stay 1 metre away from each other at all times.  Coaching sessions will be done with this in mind.

If you are sick

Anyone who is sick is required to stay at home.  IF you have any Covid-19 symptoms you must not attend the course.  Students will be able to attend a later course in this eventuality.  Anyone who shows symptoms during the course must leave immediately (and will be able to complete the course at a later date.)

Hand Hygiene and Venue Cleaning

Hand sanitiser is to be provided by the school and students asked to use it on entry.

Any tables and chairs will be disinfected by the venue.  We will also provide antibacterial wipes to disinfect tables at morning tea and lunch.

Attendance Register

All students must sign the attendance register on entry and also include their phone number to meet the criteria for contact tracing.

At risk people

If you are in the at-risk category (eg over-70, underlying health condition, immuno-compromised) it is up to your own discretion whether you participate in the face-to-face classes at this stage.  If you do not wish to attend the course that you are booked for you may postpone to a later course as usual.

Morning and afternoon tea

These will still be provided, students to maintain social distance when getting refreshments.

As always, our terms and conditions and guarantee remain unaffected, ie if a course doesn’t take place due to forces outside our control or a student is unable to attend as planned, they are welcome to postpone to any other course within the next 4 years (extended from 3 years), and at any location.

18th April

The situation around COVID-19 and its potential impact on our training courses is constantly evolving.

Please read the information about how we plan the courses will operate under each Alert Level.

This is up to date as of 18th April based on the detailed new information released by the government on 16th April. This information will be updated when the government provides further details on Alert Levels (expected on 11th May).

Alert Level 1

  • Face-to-face courses go ahead as planned
  • Students who are in self-isolation or feeling unwell stay at home
  • Physical distancing in the classroom
  • Increased hygiene practices (hand washing, venue cleaning etc)

Alert Level 2

  • Face-to-face courses go ahead as planned
  • Students who are in self-isolation, feeling unwell or over 70 stay at home
  • Physical distancing in the classroom
  • The ability to contact trace course participants
  • Increased hygiene practices (hand washing, venue cleaning etc)
  • Non-essential travel limited so students who travel from outside the area to attend may choose not to travel

Alert Level 3

  • Face-to-face courses postponed based on requirements to:
    - Stay home and restrict contact with others
    - Restrict travel to essential personal movement only
    - Businesses cannot offer services involving close personal/physical contact
  • Additional online resources available.

Alert Level 4

  • Face-to-face courses postponed due to full lockdown being in place
  • Additional online resources put in place in the interim

Online training

Our Life Coaching course is a 5 day face-to-face program. We will NOT be replacing the 5 day, in person element of the course wholly with online training as we simply cannot replicate that experience or the results you get online.

That said, when enrolling for the 5 day course you get instant access to two bonus online coaching resources.  A 10-week "Life and Coaching Mastery" course, plus a series of online life coaching Masterclasses with our trainers and other experts. There is a huge amount of valuable knowledge and skills included which you can start to use for your own benefit and for those around you, straightaway.

Brand new live, online Masterclass calls are being arranged over the next few weeks which students enrolled in the 5 day course will get access to.

The 10-week "Life and Coaching Mastery" program is also available to purchase as a stand-alone course.  The cost is $300.  Please do contact me at [email protected] if you would like further details.

A few notes

Courses may still have to be postponed at Alert Levels 1 or 2 if for example:

A high number of students postpone and it leaves us with unviable numbers, a trainer is sick or a public venue is closed and we can’t find a replacement.

As this is a rapidly changing situation there may be other scenarios which we haven’t considered. We will address these as they arise and communicate promptly with you.

A reminder of our guarantee and commitment to our students

Our terms and conditions and guarantee remain unaffected, ie if a course doesn’t take place due to forces outside our control or a student is unable to attend as planned, they are welcome to postpone to any other course within the next 4 years (extended from 3 years), and at any location.

If any face-to-face courses cannot take place then they will be postponed to later dates (or students transferred to later existing courses).

Any student at any point is able to choose not to attend if they prefer, and the option to postpone to later course dates in line with our guarantee still applies.

We are committed to continuing to deliver the training as we have done for the last 7 years, and working with all students and graduates to help them through with what they need, during any short term disruption 🙂

Thank you for reading and stay safe,
