About this course


The Covid-19 Awareness in Live Events Online course is a half-day overview of government guidelines and rules surrounding the safe production and operation of live events.  

The course is focused on learning to live with Covid-19 in the events industry as we exit lockdown. It aims to give delegates an understanding of how to protect both attendees and crew, and what documentation (such as risk assessments) are required. By the end of the course, delegates will be aware of the risks and subsequent measures necessary to minimise Covid-19 transmission.

Delegates will gain awareness of Government guidance published at the time of the course and how to best facilitate an event within the Covid-19 guidance.   

Government guidance on this subject is changing regularly, so please ensure you support your attendance of this course by checking local and national guidelines before planning any events!
