Your certificate will not be issued till all missed classes are made up. You can book a one on one lesson at an extra cost.

Is it OK if my sibling/partner/family member/child sits in with me during trainings?
No. Firstly, our space is limited. Secondly, due to Covid-19 Health and Safety restrictions we will be folllowing strict guidelines from our state govenment. Additionally, as it is a classroom environment that students have paid for we cannot allow non-students to sit within the class and get the same information as paid attendees. Also, your models will not be able to bring their children, friends or partners into the classroom.
