Face masks are now mandatory at all events and courses.

IoD vaccination policy: Covid-19 vaccinations required for all in-person IoD events and courses

Everyone attending in-person courses and events is required to be fully vaccinated and show a My Vaccine Pass on arrival.

If you have a medical exemption and a My Vaccine Pass, phone 0800 846 369 to arrange your booking.

See a summary of the IoD's Covid-19 vaccination policy.

If you register for in-person IoD courses and events you also agree to adhere to our safety measures in place to mitigate the risk of spreading Covid-19. These measures are based on NZ Government guidance around physical distancing, good hygiene practices and contact tracing.

If you are unwell or have any Covid-19 symptoms, please do not attend the course or event. Contact your course or branch manager to discuss your options.

In some instances it may be necessary for the IoD to cancel courses and events because of Covid-19. Where this happens, we will contact you prior to the course or event and your options will be discussed.
