Important notes regarding on-campus learning

If there is an instance of COVID-19 affecting you or your class, your on-campus sessions may be interrupted or shifted to online methods in order to meet Alberta Health Services requirements.  All our classes will continue to follow the guidelines set out by Alberta Health Services (AHS). If the AHS guidelines change, RDC may be required to adjust or interrupt your on-campus sessions to accommodate these changes.  Your instructor will provide you with additional information in the event of any changes.
