The COVID-19 global health crisis has impacted all our lives in a way not seen since last century. Our personal, family, social and vocational lives are all going through unprecedented change and the need for all of us to adapt has largely been forced upon us. We should all take encouragement by the way individuals, groups and business have embraced and taken on these new challenges because when we come out the other side we will all be stronger for it and ready to take up the opportunities offered in the post COVID-19 world.

Here at the ACA we see our role as continuing to support the corrosion mitigation industry in much the same way we have in the past, through the dissemination of information via our training and certification programs, networking events, technical & branch events and our conferences. However, the way in which we deliver this information to our members and to the broader industry has also had to adapt to this new global environment. Zoom meetings, webinars, virtual classrooms and live streams are the new delivery modes many businesses are implementing to communicate and to educate and the ACA is no different.

Over the coming weeks and months, you will see the ACA implementing these remote communication tools to all of our member offerings, particularly into our training and certification program. Already a number of our ACA Training and Certifications courses are available to be studied remotely and more courses will be added to the program as we progress.

We particularly encourage anyone impacted with reduced hours from their workplaces to use their downtime to upskill, to get that certification, or simply participate in further learning so you are ready to take advantage of the opportunities that will undoubtedly be there when we come out the other side. The ACA offers various payment methods to suit budgets including partial course payments, payment plans, credit card etc along with course discounts for multi bookings.

We will keep you updated here and across our social media channels but if you would like to talk to someone at the ACA directly: Please call +61 3 8608 7900 and you will be put through to the right person.
