We implemented new training
procedures, and increased safety protocols, to ensure students and staff are
safe from the spread of COVID-19. We are keeping the class size to a
maximum of 4 students, which is smaller than usual.
although clean and sanitized, will be closed temporarily to maintain social
distance between staff and students. We are asking students to take their
breaks in the equipment or in their vehicle. If your lunch needs to be
heated in the microwave or toaster oven, one student at a time will be
permitted to enter the building to prepare or to fill up their water
bottle. We are asking students not to use any drive-thru-take-out
facilities during this time.
The latrine is equipped with
soap and water so hand washing can be done as often as is necessary and
required. The latrine will also have additional sanitizing spray.
Theory testing will be done at
home. You will be provided with a set of safety videos to be viewed at
home. You will complete your tests at home and bring back to school.
Instructor will make arrangements with you for contacting him for
assistance, understanding and explanation.

keeping you safe. We are providing students with hand sanitizer and
sanitizing spray and disposable rags. We are asking the students to wipe
down the door handle and the interior of the equipment each time they enter and
exit the equipment. This is a safe practise to prepare the equipment for
the next student scheduled to operate it.
Students will be asked,
daily, about their activities the night before specifically related to any
contact they may have had with someone who is a possible risk of having the
virus. Questions are similar to what is broadly identified on all news
stations to track the spread.
If you are unwell during any
day of your training, please stay home.
We will work out a make-up training schedule to ensure you complete all
