At CPL Learning, we’re passionate about supporting the hospitality industry, and we know that our clients are passionate about supporting their people.

The free coronavirus e-learning course has been developed specifically for the hospitality industry, and not only helps inform about the virus and best practices for hygiene for your staff, but also helps support businesses in making preparations and contingencies to deal with the outbreak.
