TNCC position statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19) / Back

17 Mar


We are following advice from the Public Health Departments of the UK (Public Health England, Public Health Wales, Health Protection Scotland and Public Health Agency Northern Ireland) and we continue to monitor the current situation. We are also going to follow any advice from the Department of Public Health in Ireland as well as from the World Health Organisation and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

We take our responsibilities to our staff, faculty and course attendees very seriously and will undertake a decision on a day by day basis to protect everyone's health to prevent the spread of the virus.

Contacting us

We are implementing our business continuity plans which ensure remote access can take place for staff to work from home, if it becomes necessary. This will therefore ensure that we continue to be available by our normal contact routes for any questions from centres, instructors and candidates.


Unfortunately we have had to take the decision to postpone our courses in Belfast and Limerick in April and will continue to review further courses. If there is any change to this you will be contacted about the position and approach.

If it becomes necessary following guidance from the aforementioned authorities, we will postpone further courses. Candidates and faculty will be notified by email and they will be informed how they can transfer to a course at a later date. We will not apply cancellation fees to candidates who have to cancel out of necessity of following National guidance and advice.

General advice

Can we please remind you that if you develop a new continuous cough or fever, or if you have recently travelled from one of the countries outlined as high risk by the FCO and WHO, you should call NHS 111 / NHS 24 for immediate advice and not attend the course. Please check relevant websites daily as these countries may change.
