COVID-19 policies and protocols

Updated: 07/09/2020 at 4:05 PM

With the roadmap released by the Victorian Government on 06/09/2020, the earliest date we will be able to resume delivering barista courses is 26th October 2020. We thank you for your patience and hope to see you soon.

The Espresso School is committed to delivering you an excellent coffee education in these trying times with the COVID-19  (coronavirus) outbreak. Keeping you healthy and safe whilst in our school is our number one priority.

As part of our response to COVID-19, The Espresso School will be strictly enforcing the following measures effective immediately:

  • All students are required to wear face masks whilst on-premises
  • A reduction of class numbers from 10 students to 5 to comply with social distancing rules (4 sqm per person)
  • Stringent and frequent sanitisation of surfaces
  • All students to wash hands with hand soap upon entry and exit of the school
  • All students encouraged to sanitise using alcohol rub whenever practical
  • All students to complete a contact tracing form
  • (Coming soon) Theory components to be conducted online ahead of time via video, text and quizzes

If you feel unwell, or show even mild cold or flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, sneeze, runny nose etc), we kindly request you do not enrol or attend your scheduled class. Please inform us immediately and we will issue you a credit note for you to attend a future class at no cost.

If you have been in contact with someone who is suspected to have or has COVID-19, please do not enrol in our classes until your 14 day self-isolation period has concluded and have tested negative for COVID-19.

If you feel uncomfortable attending your booked barista course, we will offer you a credit note that may be redeemed within 3 years from the date of issue.

We will continue to monitor the situation and advice from the Australian and Victorian governments and update our protocols and policy accordingly.

Your health and safety is a matter of great importance to us and hope to see you soon.

Kind Regards,

David Seng
Education Director
