We as ELMI took the decision during the previous week to close our offices and work remotely and will continue to do so until the measures to combat the spread of the virus has been successful. We are committed to the Government’s regulations and will adhere to all interim measures put in place by government.
After much research and discussion, a decision has been taken to place our student’s Academic Life first and we are excited to announce that we will continue the Academic Programme in an online format. Should a student not have access to an online platform, they will be catered for.
It is essential that we adhere to the Academic Programme to ensure the readiness of our students for external assessments as well as the completion of the required work.
Students can expect to receive assignments to complete via the Student Portal and classes will be conducted using an online platform. This will be in a similar fashion to the “traditional class-room” style, with the difference that we will be communicating via a web/online platform.
Further communication will be sent with regards to the online platforms as well as the online assignments. We ask that you continue to check your emails for updates.
Students must please be prepared for classes to resume, in an online format, from the start of next week, 30 March 2020.
Please stay safe during this period and please subject yourself to the preventative measures put in place to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

In line with the Government measures put in place to manage the transmission of COVID-19, we have conducted a risk assessment and have initiated steps to ensure that we remain semi-operational, without compromising the health of our staff, students, customers, and suppliers.
We have decided on the following actions:
As a preventative action we will close all our physical sites as of Wednesday, 18 March until Friday, 17 April 2020. This in effect means that we will not allow any staff or visitors to enter any of our premises until further notice.
Many of our staff will be working remotely, and will be available online. Should you wish to contact us, please log a ticket via our Contact Us page on our website. Our phone lines will be down for the duration of the closure. Please bear with us as our turn-around times may be a bit slower, but we will be making every effort to attend to all queries.
We would like to reassure all our students, providers and business partners that we are committed to providing you with support and assistance during this period and will put measures in place to catch-up on time lost.

We have established a working committee to initiate and action measures to minimise the impact it may have on our employees, members and providers.
