Dear New and Prospective Students
In light of the ongoing developments with Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in an effort to continue our commitment to providing the best training for our students, we have temporarily moved the delivery of our lectures, assignments, and assessments to an online distance learning format. Even online, ready access to instructors and a variety of approaches to the material remain some of the strongest foundations of our teaching delivery.
By necessity, most of our programs’ lab and practical work will be delayed until governmental authorities are able to allow the school to resume its normal teaching methods and processes. However, our instructors are providing a combination of real-time and virtual content, including lectures, demonstrations, and class discussions. With a little ingenuity and the creative spirit we foster on campus, many of our regular classroom learning activities, including the drills and games we use to reinforce the material, work just as well in an online meeting. Even our regular support services, plus added IT help, are available to students online.
Please know that our commitment to continuity of training is at the forefront of our mission. We are working hard to ensure that each and every one of our students is able to complete their educational goals. When it is deemed safe for our students, we will resume our regular teaching delivery method.
For our prospective students, while we normally have an in-person admissions process, for your health and safety, we can conduct our entire admissions process over the phone and online – including a virtual campus tour! This will allow both you and the institution to learn more about each other while minimizing the need for direct contact during these uncertain times.
As always, we are here to answer your questions. In the meantime, we wish you the best of health!
