2020 Skill Conference Credit Holders

If you are an individual who had elected to carry their registration credit from 2020 to 2021 you will be contacted by the conference secretariat to confirm your registration.

Covid-19 Policy

The safety of the attendees to the Skills Conference is of the highest importance. Whilst the world is making progress in the Covid-19 battle, we do understand we are living now in a changing world.  Attendees to the Skills Conference will need to ensure they adhere to any safety measures and restrictions that may be in place at the time.

In the event that the Apprentice Employment Network NSW & ACT is unable to hold the 2021 Skills Conference as a face to face event due to circumstances beyond its control, the Skills Conference will be held as a virtual event, and all registrations will be transferred to virtual registrations. If this occurs, specific instructions on how to log in and access the Virtual Conference will be sent out to delegates prior to the event. The Apprentice Employment Network NSW & ACT cannot be held responsible for the loss to delegates of any travel, hotel or other related costs as a result of the cancellation of the face to face version of the Skills Conference.

If a registered attendee is faced with a restriction that limits their ability to travel due to possible Covid-19 isolation or government policy, we will provide the registered attendee with virtual registration access as the alternative.
