Re: Impact of Coronavirus on NAPCAN Workshops

Most importantly, we hope that you are staying safe and well in these challenging times. 

NAPCAN has been working hard to transfer our workshops onto an online format (using ZOOM). 

  • If you have registered for a free workshop in April or May, you will notice that these are now displayed on our Training Calendar as ONLINE. Please keep the date in your diary and you will be contacted with details as available. Note, there may be some changes in the exact timing of the workshops due to the online format, and because the original workshops were for 30 people (and we are limiting our online sessions to 10 people). 

  • If you would like to register for a workshop later in the year, we encourage you to continue to do so. Please note that it is likely that more workshops (i.e. into June and beyond) may also need to be delivered online. If so, we will let you know and will try to keep the times and dates as close as possible to the current listing. 

  • Please note that ONLINE workshops are indicated as NT or QLD, and include information specific to those areas, only enrol if you are located in one if these 2 state/territory 

  • If you don’t have access to the technology to do online training, please let us know and we will do our best to help you, or to reschedule your training after the social distancing restrictions have been lifted. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via [email protected]

Stay safe and all the best to you and your team.
