To our Customers and Community,
We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation very closely, and to operate in accordance with all government health and safety advice.
As a responsible RTO, we are committed to playing our part in controlling the spread of coronavirus.
Students must not attend a course at FSA if they have:
- arrived in Australia by any means in the last 15 days, or
- been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus in the last 15 days.
- if they are unwell, regardless of whether the symptoms are associated with the coronavirus, we ask that they stay at home and seek advice from a medical practitioner
If, after 15 days of self-isolation, they remain without symptoms, they may attend a course at one of our facilities.
In addition, they must receive medical clearance before attending a course at one of our facilities if they:
- have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, or
- are under medical assessment for coronavirus
The health and safety of our customers, teams and the community will always be our first priority and FSA has introduced a number of steps to mitigate the health risk to our customer, teams and the community to control the spread of COVID-19
