IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE: JULY 1, 2021
All courses are currently suspended pending CFO approval to resume.
The CFO will follow the Public Health recommendations released Roadmap to Reopen. Based on the guiding principles for each Step of the Roadmap, courses will resume when we enter Step Three. We expect to enter Step One of the Roadmap on June 14, 2021 and we will remain at each step for at least 21 days to evaluate any impacts on key public health and health system indicators.
This means we anticipate the suspension of all courses to at least July 26, 2021. We will resume courses once regions re-open after Stage 3 and the CFO approves indoor training activities. (While some health and safety training is authorized for certain workplaces and other organizations, the CFSC and CRFSC are not considered essential training. Our safety education courses are not indoor gatherings, nor are they organized public events. Due to the nature of the training provided, and the training standards approved by the CFO, outdoor training is not an appropriate or an approved venue for the CFSC/CRFSC programs).
We will be contacting each student to reschedule. All participants from our postponed courses from November 2020, and January-July 2021 will be offered VIP placements in upcoming listed courses and will be notified. VIP reserved students will follow shortly thereafter.
