Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) – student updates

All HERC students are asked to refer to this page for any impacts to HERC training facilities as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19). This page will be updated as soon as we become aware of any changes we need to let you know about.

HERC is continuing to provide high-quality education in these challenging times.  In response to the COVID-19 climate, face to face classes are now being delivered using a combination of online, self-directed, and virtual classrooms unless otherwise notified by your educator.

Due to a number of staff working from home we ask that you do not come into the HERC facility unless you have been invited to attend a timetabled small group session or have pre-booked a computer to use in our library.

We continue to offer enrolments in our programs and you are welcome to contact us via info@herc.tas.edu.au or 03 6223 6777 if you have queries about how we can meet your educational needs.
