The student will be rescheduled with the appropriate training class to makeup missed time as it is mandatory to receive all hours for successful completion of course. The same course may only be rescheduled twice. After the second unsuccessful rescheduling attempt, the class will be dropped with a grade of incompletion and the student will have to re-enroll.

If there is a call that must be taken due to an emergent situation, please leave the room quietly to take the call outside of the instructional environment. If this policy is violated once, a verbal warning will be issued. Upon a second violation, the student will be asked to leave the program as distractions must be minimized.
