Host agencies require students to provide a current criminal record check and vulnerable sector check from a recognized police service in order to be considered for tours/or fieldtrips and applied workplace experiences. Individuals who have been convicted criminally and not pardoned will likely be prohibited from proceeding to a work placement. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that he or she is eligible to participate.
Mature applicants with related experience or training who do not meet the academic admission requirements may be considered for acceptance following additional assessment conducted at the college. Please contact us for further direction.
Candidates should also be aware that they will be required to participate in strenuous physical fitness classes and are encouraged to consult with their family physician.
Prior to the beginning of the applied workplace experience, host facilities may require the completion of an Immunization and Medical Form and proof of valid CPR Level C Lifesaver certification. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that he or she has met these requirements.
