JVI plans to resume classroom training as soon as the COVID-19 health situation allows. This course is scheduled to take place at JVI, but may have to be delivered virtually in case safe travel to and in-person training in Vienna will not be possible. The decision to offer virtual instead of onsite training, or a combination of the two (hybrid), will be made within two months of the course start date.
Vaccination against Covid-19 may be required before coming to Vienna.
