Courses and events

If you are booked on an IoD course or event in Auckland, it will go ahead as planned.  

Visits to public and event venues are not considered social gatherings, which means event and conference venues can have up to 100 attendees.

More detail about these rules can be found here on the NZ Government COVID-19 website.

Courses and events in other cities will continue to be delivered. Gatherings can be held with up to 100 people in a defined space.

The IoD has revised protocols for all face-to-face events and courses to ensure health and safety measures incorporate NZ Government guidance around COVID-19. 

  • We will maintain attendance lists for contract tracing
  • Hand sanitiser will be available and we encourage good hygiene practices
  • Physical distancing will be required at courses and events
  • Attendees and others should stay home if they are unwell
  • We are prepared and if required will act quickly to step up if there are changes to alert levels
  • If you are unwell or have any COVID-19 symptoms, do not attend the course or event. Failure to adhere to safety measures may result in cancellation of your attendance and forfeiture of your fee.

For more information on our health and safety precautions under see our COVID-19 safety plan for courses and events.

If you are uncomfortable travelling or attending courses under these conditions, please contact your course manager who can discuss with you the option of transferring to a later date at no charge.
