CHIA Vic’s ability to run our biennial conference and our extensive range of industry-specific and tailored in-house training programs hit a COVID-shaped obstacle in March. With two months to go, the conference had to be cancelled and all face-to-face training put on hold.

However, our Business & Development guru, Holly Mullaney quickly swung into action, ensuring our trainers were confident to run online sessions via Zoom.

We began offering online training from April 1, and the new delivery method proven to be a hit, contributing to an increase in the number of training courses from 74 in the previous year to 95, with the number of people trained rising from 990 to 1,120 people.

Feedback from both trainers and participants has been extremely positive, with many preferring the flexibility of online training. As a result, even when all COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, CHIA Vic plans to continue to offer an online training stream.
