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, blended 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.
