IHA Lecturers & Courses
We are going through a difficult period and I hope that this email finds you and your loved ones in good health.
On 3/1/21, a joint meeting of the Executive Committee and the Education Committee of the organization was held. At this meeting, the topic of holding the courses was discussed. Most of the pools are not open now and there are many restrictions on the activities of those that are open. The pandemic has halted most of the courses, and this has implications for training, course completion and meeting conditions in order to continue to be considered a lecturer.
Therefore, it was decided that:
Currently a lecturer who has not taught for 3 years cannot be considered a lecturer. This period was extended to five years, until the end of 2024.
Two years prolongation for course completion for participants: two years from the day of last course for participant (now: one year).
Up to 2 more people can attend a course to complete days which they missed, meaning that up to 18 (now: 16) in a course without an assistant and up to 26 (now: 24) for a course with an assistant. This is only for completion and not for an entire course.
Best wishes and stay safe,
