IMPORTANT TRAINING UPDATE: COVID-19

As COVID-19 continues to impact areas across the country, we are closely monitoring new developments. The health and safety of our customers and employees at Cervus is our top priority.
 
Recently, the provincial governments of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have announced multi-phase plans to reopen businesses and public venues. We are now accepting in-person and jobsite training requests for ALL branches. Classes are currently being scheduled with safety precautions and restrictions.

Effective May 19:
  • We will restrict the size of our classes to a maximum of 9 students to avoid crowding and maintain physical distancing.
  • All large student groups will be moved to digital/online format for the theory portion of the training with small groups of 9 students for the practical portion.
  • We will supply students with protective gloves while operating the equipment.
  • We will completely clean and wipe the classroom and training equipment for each class to minimize any contamination.
  • We ask the students and/or employers who are registering for training to be honest and if they are not feeling well to stay home or consult with a doctor. 
Online training courses are still available as an alternative to regular in-person and jobsite classroom training.
 
We remain open and ready to support your parts, service and sales needs. Please contact your local Cervus 亿游彩票平台 branch for further information.
