Although the Dutch government has lifted most restrictions in the Netherlands, we acknowledge that Covid-19 continues to impact daily life profoundly and many of our course participants are unable to travel to the Netherlands currently.

Therefore, we have decided to offer our courses till end of December 2020 online instead of in Hilversum. After December 2020 we will re-evaluate if courses will still be running online or face to face. 

Face to face or online, RNTC remains highly committed to an interactive learning experience which will help you take your career to the next level. If you have subscribed to one of our courses, we assure you that it will continue despite COVID-19.

In the past months we have redesigned many of our courses so that participants can join from the safety of their homes and work places. Our e-learning courses have received high ratings from participants.

Don’t hesitate to contact us in case you have any questions, with an e-mail to [email protected].
