Dear MAX friends, students, and partners,
We have been closely monitoring what state and local officials are recommending in the face of combating the COVID-19 (corona) virus. While the news is concerning, it is our understanding that the current risk of serious illness remains low.
We at MAX Technical Training understand the delicate position facing our learning community. As we closely monitor developments related to Coronavirus, we want to update our customers on the measures and guidance we have in place to support the health and safety of all students.
Classes and meetings are continuing at MAX and we are taking extra precautions in cleaning and providing students with antibacterial wipes and hand sanitizers. We have even changed our coffee and food services to minimize the spread of germs.
In the event that your health or the virus risk necessitates that additional protective measures be taken, we want to issue a reminder that we feature MAX – Live Instructor-Led Training (remote) that is 100% virtual. Remote training options have been a part of the fabric of our training offerings and have surged in popularity over the past decade. These classes are led by a live instructor and feature hands-on labs that can be taken in the comfort of your home or office. All you need is a computer, internet connection, and speakers or a headset. See the link above.
To reduce the risk of exposure to Coronavirus (and any/all issues that may arise) we encourage our students to explore our remote training options to complete their training risk-free. For more information on our remote training options, please refer to our Delivery Methods.
Remember, you can help prevent the spread of any illness within our region, including COVID-19, by adhering to the Center for Disease Control’s guidelines:
- Stay home if you are sick, with the exception of getting medical care
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw it away
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after using the restroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose and sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Regularly wipe down all surfaces and frequently touched items (cell phones, keyboards, counters, etc.).
- Keep a proper social distance – avoid shaking hands and hugging.
