The Course will run from 08h30 to 17h00 daily, except Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure that you book your return flights (if applicable) from 18h30 onwards (19h30 onwards for international flights). This will give you enough time to complete the Course and get to the OR Tambo International Airport on time. We would appreciate your assistance in this regard, as it is extremely disruptive to have participants asking to write their final test earlier so that they can catch an early flight. This will not be allowed. If you choose to leave early and miss the final written test, you will forfeit your Official Course completion certificate.Meals:
Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea is provided to delegates. Dietary preferences are catered for, including: Kosher, Halaal, and vegetarian. Certified Kosher and Halaal meals do attract a surcharge of R300 per person per day - If you choose either of these options, please add this surcharge to the payment for your applicable Course fee. If we are notified of any food allergies, these will be also catered for within reason. The cost will be the Course fee (R6200, R7900, R6600 or R9000) + the Kosher or Halaal meals (R1500) = total.
Secure onsite parking is available to all delegates
