Update 27.8.2020 - More course dates in autumn 2020
There will be additional course dates in autumn 2020. We hope that this will result in a better distribution of the participants in the individual courses in order to be able to do smaller groups than has been the case in recent years. In general, the number of participants in the courses is limited in order to keep the risk of infection low.
Additional course dates:
Alpine course (German): 26th of November - 4th of December 2020, Kitzsteinhorn
December Course (German Anwärter, LS1, LS2): 12th - 23rd of December 2020, Kitzsteinhorn
December Course (English Anwärter, LS1): 12th - 23rd of December 2020, Kitzsteinhorn
All Autumn 2020 courses are currently due to run as scheduled.
Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures: During practical and theory sessions, when using the ski lifts and in the hotel, the current health measures set by the Austrian federal government are to be complied with. We ask all participants to observe and comply with these measures and also to show consideration for each others’ health.
What happens if a course is canceled due to Covid-19?
Should we need to cancel the course, there is the possibility to postpone and move it to another date. If no new date can be found, all payments made leading up to the decision, will be refunded.
What happens if a participant in the course falls ill with Covid-19?
Should a participant fall ill with Covid-19 during the course, all necessary measures will be immediately implicated to protect the health of all other participants.
The person who contracted the illness and all other persons who have been in direct contact with them, will be immediately isolated from the other participants and put in contact with the relevant health authority to take any further necessary steps. Potentially, individual parts of the course or the entire course could be canceled.
The canceled course days would be made up at another point in time and no additional course fees will be charged.
What happens if a participant cancels a course due to Covid-19?
If a participant cancels a course, our cancellation terms and conditions apply, even if the reason for the cancellation is Covid-19. There is the possibility of taking out cancellation insurance with ‘Europäischen Reiseversicherung’ More information can be found at by following this link: https://www.europaeische.at/en/service/travelmagazine/article/covid-19-information-on-travel-insurance
How does the room allocation work?
The current rules and requirements set by the federal government are adhered to regarding room allocation. Accordingly, for people from different households, the minimum distance is to be observed (social distancing). Should there be are any requests regarding roommates, we can look into accommodating you with whom you wish. Should anyone want a single room, this can be booked as part of the course booking.
Indoor events, car-sharing, Ski lifts?
In order to protect yourselves and others, we ask participants to wear face masks during indoor events (e.g. theory lectures) and when car-sharing. When using public transport (bus, Gondola, etc.) the wearing of mouth and nose protection is compulsory and required by law.
Our request to all participants:
Our goal is to ensure that all participants have a wonderful and educational time during training and to keep the risk of infection as low as possible for everyone. Despite all the measures we have taken, however, it can only be successful if every single participant deals with, and acts responsibly in regard to the pandemic and aim to protect yourself and the health of others at all times. Accordingly, our request for your understanding and diligence is serious. Keep the necessary safe distance to other people in the hotel, to wear a nose and mouth protection, adhere to social distancing and restrict visits to night clubs and après-ski bars.
