Our promise 'Pitman Cares' underpins the caring spirit of our brand and guides our unrelenting efforts to ensure your wellbeing.
As part of our ongoing efforts to create a trusted and nurturing environment for you, we have embraced a series of safety standards and precautionary measures across our training centres.
This includes additional cleaning routines for each training centre, cleaning of student workstations before and after each use, redesign of student study areas to support social distancing, removing shared resources to minimise risk of infection and increased use of video invigilation and coaching tools for our colleagues.
Individual precautionary measures may vary by location. Please refer to in-centre guidance.
