SPECIAL COURSE ARRANGEMENT...see more Dear Valued Student,

Following our communication on 9th February we would like to update you relating to our desire to support the efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Since our last communication we have seen an increase in the number of cases of COVID-19 in Hong Kong. As such, we will continue to conduct courses live online through Zoom until 31st March 2022.

We have taken the utmost care to ensure that the material and tasting kits we provide for online courses are prepared in the most sanitary conditions we can. All of our staff are tested daily for COVID and daily cleaning is stringent.

In view of the strong demand for courses offered online via Zoom we have upgraded much of our IT related to online presentation.

Also, starting in March we will be offering variations of some of our popular courses which we have adapted to be more suitable for online presentation. Please visit our website at www.awsec.com for more information.

We will not be offering exams in March. However, we will be scheduling exams as soon as we are able to return to the classrooms.

Towards the end of March we will again assess the situation and issue an update.

Please do feel free to call our Centre if you have any questions.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stay safe and well. We look forward to welcoming you back to classrooms as soon as we possibly can.
