Covid Compliance for Live Events

This class lasts approximately 1hr 45min and is available to groups of 20+ by request only.

It’s time to get back to Live Events again, but how do we do this safely? With Covid Compliance for Live Events. Health Education Services (creators of the Covid Compliance Officer (CCO) and Pandemic Compliance Advisor (PCA) courses) have realized the need for Live Events to understand and use Covid Compliance and created a customized course for ALL Live Events.

Please note this class does not teach you how to become a Covid Compliance Officer (CCO) or a Pandemic Compliance officer (PCA). Instead, this class explains compliance guidelines, mitigation strategies and safety practices as they are relevant to the myriad of Live Events. As there are many different types of live events as well as numerous event staff roles and differing local regulations for live events, Health Education Services will offer CDC-based guidelines, practical strategies and a broad view for how to work at and attend live events safely—from an intimate coffeehouse performance to a regional theater production to a large stadium event.

This class outlines protocols necessary before and during Live Events including health screenings, social distancing parameters, proper PPE use and sanitization regulations.

This class is for venue staff, venue management, touring staff, promoters, talent, security, catering, AV, volunteers, vendors and even the audience. This class covers broad health and safety practices for sports events, theater performances, festivals, concerts, and any other live entertainment, production, or event.

Important Note:

The Covid Compliance for Live Events course has concluded, though it can still be accessed privately for groups of twenty (20) or more. Also, the resources will be available to those who took the course through July 31, 2022. These resources will be accessible through the same link and password each attendee received upon class completion. We hope you will continue to utilize these valuable resources as you plan live events.

If you have any questions or access issues, or would like to schedule a single-view group class, please email our administrator at

As we recognize our resources are quite expansive and offer links to important information like federal and state guidelines, supply vendors, and up-to-date practices, we believe they can still be useful to Live Events Professionals as well as educators, researchers, and all those who work where people gather.

If you did not take the class and would like access to these resources, please consider taking our COVID-19 Compliance Officer (CCO) course. For further information and registration, visit the COVID-19 Compliance Officer overview page.

Class Completion:

After completing three polls and survey, participants will receive a course completion certificate attesting to the understanding of the class content. In addition, you will receive a link to valuable resources including example screening surveys, on-site posters, and more.

The class completion certificate will emailed to you the week following the date of your class.
