The entire CIET team has been working hard recently to provide new training options for you through virtual real-time classrooms considering the current situation.

Postponement/cancellation policy

You can postpone your registration to a future session if desired, though we cannot yet determine how long the COVID-19 crisis will last. Indications from governments seem to indicate that isolation and travel restrictions might last for longer than we would like. For now, we propose keeping the registrations of all participants active. We will inform you of new dates as they become possible/available, including our new Fall 2020 training dates, which should be announced in May-June. Should you wish to cancel later, we have suspended our cancellation policy and there are no fees for any cancellation effective immediately.

Through all these measures, CIET hopes to provide as much flexibility as possible to training participants while respecting its commitments to other participants, trainers and partners, as well as public health recommendations.

 We thank you very much for your trust and collaboration and look forward to welcoming you in our virtual classrooms!
