32 weeks (including 2 week Christmas break) 600 hours of instruction.

Start Date:      Jan and Sep intake

Conduct:

Plagiarizing or cheating on assigned work or tests will not be tolerated.  If a student is guilty of either plagiarism or cheating on an assignment, he or she will receive an automatic 0 on that assignment; a second occurrence will result in a mark of 0 for that course and the loss of the student’s diploma.  Any cheating on a test or exam will result in an automatic 0 on that test or exam.  Cheating is considered not only the use of another’s work but also the sharing of the work with another.  Both parties are equally to blame.

Attendance:

Absenteeism will be treated in the same manner as that required in the workplace which allows one and one-quarter days a month for absences caused by illness. Cumulative absences jeopardize a student’s opportunity to participate in on-the-job training and affect the final mark in a course in which the student has missed time.  Chronic tardiness carries the same consequences as repeated absences.

Students are expected to phone the college at 450-1408, if they are going to be absent or late. Failure to do so before 9:00 a.m. will result in a mark of 0 on all missed tests and assignments for that day. When students arrive late, or leave early, they must advise the Front Desk staff. They will keep record of this for use by the instructors and the administration.

When a student misses a class in a subject, or misses lab time, he or she is responsible for getting the work assignment or making up the lab time outside regular class hours.
