To Our Valued Customers, Employees and Partners:

While the health and safety of all our employees and customers is the highest priority during the COVID-19 crisis and as we continue to operate during these rapidly evolving and uncertain times, the health and safety of those entering our facilities continues to be a top priority.

At Blackfox, we do not take working under these conditions lightly, and have made the following changes to mitigate the risk of exposure in our facilities:

5-step safety check before entering Blackfox facilities

  • Limiting the risk to our employees by reducing the number of staff in our facilities by 50%
  • Inbound personal temperature control at entrances
  • Face masks provided and to be worn in classrooms, hallways, common areas and in offices
  • Hand sanitizers and wipes positioned at entrance and throughout offices and classrooms
  • Enhanced sanitation per CDC recommendations with frequent cleanings of our facilities with emphasis on common spaces and surfaces
  • Adopted social distancing practices in all workspaces and classrooms
  • Wall mount hand sanitizer stations
  • Mandated work exclusions for anyone who feels ill or is symptomatic, specifically:

If you, or a member of your household, do not feel well (and have not been diagnosed), you should remain home until you have had not had a fever without the use of medicine for 72 hours, all other symptoms have improved and at least seven days have passed since your symptoms first appeared.

If you, or a member of your household, are diagnosed by a medical professional with the flu, you are required to stay home until 24 hours has passed since the last symptom.

These practices are in line with CDC and WHO recommendations that are reviewed frequently and revised as necessary. We believe these are the steps necessary to reduce risk at Blackfox Training Institute to ensure all precautions are in place and practiced.

If you cannot attend our in-person courses, please look into our online IPC certification options for lecture-based courses that do not have hands-on requirements. If your certification is about to expire and you cannot attend our in-person recertification courses, IPC is granting certificate expiration extensions for all J-STD-001 and IPC 7711/7721 CIT certificates that expire in May 2020.

Be careful, be vigilant, and be healthy! We care about you!
