Attendance Requirements - A student must attend at least 153 hours (85%) of the 180-hour program. An accumulation of 27 hours of absences from classes is considered excessive and may result in dismissal from School. Veteran’s benefits are interrupted at this point.
Class Schedule - Classes meet daily, Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 3:30. Lunch is from 12:30 to 1:30.
Tardiness - Lateness for any part of an hour will be counted as a full hour of absence.
Leaves - A student who must take extensive leave beyond the allowed attendance policy limits due to special circumstances such as prolonged illness, family emergency, etc., will be permitted to re-enter at the phase of training that is identical to the one he or she left. Earlier phases of training may be repeated at no additional tuition cost as determined by the School. Veteran students must be terminated for pay purposes.
Re-Admittance Policy - If a student has been terminated for attendance reasons and can give evidence that the cause for poor attendance has been eliminated, the student may be re-admitted on a probationary basis for a three week period. Six hours or one full class day of unexcused absence during this period will result in termination. Veterans benefits may be resumed during the probationary period.
