EANE is excited to get back to in-person training! Like other activities affected by COVID-19, in-person training will look different for a while. Our number one concern is your safety and well-being. EANE is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all our employees, facilitators, members, and guests. Our goal is to protect all visitors in our buildings from exposure to COVID-19 and help prevent the spread of the virus.

EANE will comply with state opening guidelines as we open our buildings for training. We have created a plan based on the requirements of state Executive Orders in each of the three states in which we operate. It is also our intention to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines as well as state guidelines.

The following guidelines will be followed to keep you and others safe while in our buildings:

Health & Hygiene

  • Upon arrival at our training location, you will be asked to sign-in, have your temperature taken using a contactless thermometer and answer several health screening questions.  CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE QUESTIONNAIRE.
