J129 as ladder says your still learning everything, but socially distancing. C&R is in face masks and gloves at all times which is rather warm work.
Ladder im literally half way through the 8 weeks, its lots to take in. Where abouts are you training?

So if it’s a residential course are the group still meeting after work? We had study groups and went out socialising when I joined last time!
I can’t imagine social distancing from fellow colleagues doing the training..

Not residential on my course . We were local level 3 and not supposed to meet outside of work before the current lockdown but I know 3 off my course have been meeting up.
We have guidelines on car sharing as in avoid if possible but if needed wearing masks 😷 having windows open and sitting far apart if possible.

Kingofthekippax-Was it always non residential or did it change because of covid? When I did my residential course, we were encouraged to meet up so we could study together for exams..
Seems strange not telling people to work as part of a team, after all isn’t being a prison officer all about being in a team?
Did you enjoy C&R? Did everything pass?

Still 1 week left of c&r, still some residential courses, but they are trying to keep people local due to Covid
