Capture


PTRC is monitoring the quickly evolving global impact of COVID-19, and are acting to ensure that the health of our members and employees is not put at undue risk. 

From the outset we have maintained an approach to align activity with Government guidance, and continue to do so. We have plans in place to ensure that PTRC continue to operate with minimal disruption, wherever possible, and that services remain largely unaffected. However, responding prudently to evident risks we will from this week limit all non-essential face to face training, meetings and events and whenever possible move activity online for the foreseeable future. We anticipate some disruption, but will make every effort to minimise it.

We are committed to ensuring that we continue to provide the Knowledge, Network and Knowhow to support the profession at this critical time.
