The Academy successfully shifted to online classes in March and completed our final term, fulfilling our commitment to our Full Time students to provide 737 hours training, while our part time students also learned to Zoom with the rest of the world.

We are now moving forward with plans for in-person classes starting in September. We are working to address the guidelines set by the Provincial Health Authority in consultation with WorksafeBC and our regulatory body, the Private Training Institutions Branch of the Ministry of Advanced Education. We also have digital delivery licensing as a backup, should the COVID situation worsen during the school year. Classes can also be live-streamed for those who wish to attend virtually.

*International students will isolate for 14 days before entering the academy.

*Reduced traffic flow in the building

* Mandatory social distancing

*Masking whenever possible

*Increased sanitation measures

*Designated Covid safety officer for every class
