Coronavirus (369) National Technician Development Centre: Covid-19 resources

8 April, 2020

Dear Neil & Colleagues,

I've just learned of this Covid-19 initiative from The National Technician Development Centre in the UK - this centre focuses on the role of technicians and "provides organisations with everything they need to support the delivery of high quality and sustainable technical services across all sectors."

As well as being of use to technicians in the UK, it may be of use to those in other countries that are part of, or plan to set up, similar initiatives.

Covid-19 resources:

Best wishes
