Standard First Aid and CPR level C with AED are mandatory requirements and must be valid in the second year of study for field placements in both the Fall and Winter semesters.
Mandatory Immunizations- start the process in the first semester of the program.
Criminal Background Check: Applicants are advised that Criminal Background Checks (CBC) conducted by the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) are required for programs with field or clinical placements. Certain criminal convictions may prevent participation in placements and program completion may not be possible. Attaining and paying for a CBC and Vulnerable Sector Screening (OPP) is the responsibility of the student, and these may have to be renewed every three to six months. Applicants with criminal records are advised to contact the Associate Dean/Campus Dean of the respective school prior to applying. Students going on field placement must complete and submit a Criminal Background Check. Please note: CBC checks generally expire after one year, consequently Cornwall students do not need to submit a CBC until after the successful completion of the first year.
Applicants with post-secondary credits may be eligible for direct entry to an upper level of the program (semester or year) depending on transfer credits.

If you are unsure what level to apply for, please contact the program coordinator.
