Course Programme

Day 1

At about 1.30/1.45 p.m. we will meet in the hall of the IRCA Academy where programs and information about the course will be provided. At this time, we will take the opportunity to ascertain whether everyone has arrived.

At 6.00 p.m., guests will return back to the hotel where an evening meal has been organized at 8.30 p.m.
Anyone with their own vehicle can make their own way back to the hotel unless they have requested and confirmed the transfer service.

*For logistical reasons, early arrivals cannot be accommodated at the IRCA Headquarters: guests may check into the hotel from the morning of 15th April.

Day 2


For those that have requested the transfer service, we will meet in the hall of the hotel at 8.30 a.m. to leave for the IRCA Academy so we can begin the day’s course by 9.00 a.m.

Lunch will be served in the IRCA Academy restaurant at 12.30 p.m.

The course should finish by 6.00 p.m., and transfers from IRCA to the airport may be booked without the need to return to the hotel*. Just let the IRCA Team know, and they will contact our regular company: a driver will be waiting for you at the agreed time with which you can confirm the details (the transfer can be paid for by cash and/or credit card in the car).

* Anyone that uses this service may leave their luggage in the Academy’s cloakroom.

Our staff will accompany anyone back to the hotel if they have requested an internal transfer and do not have their own vehicle.
