Delivery Information

Face-to-Face delivery

Face-to-Face delivery is offered fully on campus.  Apprentices will be required to attend classes and shop/ lab portions in person on our campus.

Blended delivery

Blended delivery is offered with the theory portion online and the practical/ shop portions offered on campus.  Apprentices come on campus only when they are scheduled to complete the practical/shop portions of their courses.  We have extended the schedule for blended delivery training to give you more time to complete the theory portions online.  However, if you are able to advance through the theory portions quickly, you may have the option to finish your program earlier than the last day in the schedule.

The online theory portion of our programs will be in a mainly Online Any Time format. You will mostly be able to set your own hours for when you work on your course material.  Any Online Real Time online portions of the class will be scheduled and communicated with sufficient prior notice so you can ensure you are available. More information will be provided by your instructor

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.
