COVID-19 UPDATES

Current as of 20 May 2020

As you may be aware, the WA Government has released a four-phase roadmap to get Western Australians back to work safely and begin the process of restarting the State’s economy. 

Phase 2 of the roadmap commences on Monday 18 May and sees several restrictions lifted.

Before the opening of campus, APSI has completed the public building start-up checklist from City of Perth and WA State Government’s mandatory requirements. A copy of the certificate is posted on campus notice board.

A copy of COVID-19 Safety Plan is available on campus.

APSI will reopen its campus in Wellington Fair East Perth from Monday, 25 May.

Office opening hours are

The following measures have been implemented to safeguard the health and safety of all students, visitors and staff members

If you are a current student of APSI, your trainer will contact you directly to provide specific details on how your course will operate for the rest of Term 2. We have been delivering our courses via a blended online and face to face practical training and this will continue. Your trainer will continue to take your attendance via ZOOM or on campus.

Some face to face classes have already resumed on campus and in practical kitchens in particular those courses which require practical training and access to specialist on campus equipment. Your trainer will contact your directly to let your know your own training schedule.
