Coronavirus (COVID-19): Information for members and customers

Updated 21 July 2021

The health and wellbeing of our members, event and course attendees, and employees is a key priority for Governance Institute of Australia. 

Accordingly, we are closely monitoring the situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). 

We understand that our members may be concerned by the global developments, particularly in relation to their face-to-face attendance at events and courses and we will continue to draw directly on the official advice and information provided by the World Health Organisation and by both Federal and State government authorities.

Postgraduate study

Postgraduate subjects continue to be delivered fully online in semester two, 2021.  

Our longer-term strategy of introducing blended learning remains on hold until the situation with COVID-19 becomes clear.

Short Courses and Certificates

There are three course delivery options for many of our Short Courses and Certificates: 

  • Online/ distance: Complete in your own time. 
  • Virtual: Via a digital format with a course facilitator and interactive conversation. 
  • Face-to-Face: Small groups of 10 and under in a safe social distancing environment (when official health regulations allow). 




Staying COVID-19 safe

For the ongoing safety of all students and employees during face-to-face learning we have put in place the following measures: 

  • Course attendance is limited to 10 people, which includes the course facilitator. 
  • Training rooms are set up to ensure that each participant is socially distanced. 
  • QR code check-in.  
  • Masks may be required to be worn in indoor settings, when mandated by local state governments. 
  • Sanitising stations at entry to Governance Institute premises with everyone asked to use these. 
  • Catering is carefully managed to ensure no shared platters or utensils. 
  • If anyone is feeling unwell or has any symptoms of illness, however mild, we ask that you do not attend. Please call our team and we will transfer you to online study. 

We continue to monitor official advice and will update our program of events and courses accordingly.
