As a Student

Requirements to be Completed Before Attending Classes

  • Students are required to obtain a certificate in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (Healthcare provider) and a certificate in First Aid prior to the commencement of studies.
  • An Immunization and Communicable Disease’s Form with documentation of current immunization at registration (including a two-step TB Skin Test.) is required. Hepatitis B vaccination is mandatory as well as a serology test of all existing immunizations. All immunization information is to be submitted to the health center prior to the commencement of studies.
  • Blood serology testing must be completed for all students.  Requisition will be made available at the Health Centre on campus.
  •  Each student is required to purchase a dental hygiene instrument kit at the start of the program .
  • Year 2 and Year 3 students will be required to obtain a Criminal Background Check.  A letter of request is available at the hub.
  • To be eligible for participation in field placement a student must not have been convicted of any criminal offense for which the student has not yet been pardoned. An unpardoned criminal record will result in the student not being able to participate in the field placement courses and therefore prevent the student from graduating. A recent and valid criminal reference check (CRC) is therefore required to enable the student to progress through this program.
  • Note: Procedures and regulations for obtaining criminal record search documents are controlled by the RCMP and the Government of Canada. These procedures and regulations may change at any time without notification. Confederation College will endeavour to notify students of any changes when they come to our attention. As of March 1, 2011 the following reflects the current procedures and regulations of the RCMP with regard to Vulnerable Sector Verifications. The RCMP identified a means to enhance vulnerable sector checks to make the searches more rigorous. In the interest of public safety, the enhancements were quickly implemented to protect vulnerable members of society. As a result of the enhancement, a Vulnerable Sector Verification now requires the submission of fingerprints whenever the gender and date of birth of an applicant match to an existing pardoned sex offender record. This is not an accusation of criminality, but a requirement for a thorough verification to confirm identity and protect personal privacy. This process will take at least four months. Note: Any costs associated with acquiring a Criminal Reference Check (CRC) will be the responsibility of the student applicant.
