Vyaire Medical is working on a program to offer remote training sessions to replace the popular in-person training for the company’s U.S. partners.
The COVID-19 outbreak forced the cancellation of all application, technical and biomedical classroom training sessions at Vyaire Medical’s Training Center in Mettawa, IL. “Our top priority is the safety and wellness of our employees, customers, and partners,” said Katrina Hynes, MHA, RRT, RFPT, clinical education manager, U.S. Technical Services at Vyaire Medical.
“Vyaire is currently developing a training strategy that will enable us to deliver elements of our training remotely,” she added. “This is an evolving situation and we are diligently working to develop alternative training resources for our partners.”
There is no scheduled date for the resumption of classroom training. “We are closely monitoring public health recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization to guide our actions and resume in-person training when it is deemed safe for our employees and partners,” Hynes said.
