What are my options if I am unsuccessful in the course?

The instructor delivering the course is ultimately responsible for determining if you are successful or not, as by signing your certification they are stating they have determined you meet the requirements as set out by the curriculum and in theory could be held legally accountable in certain situations.  That being said each instructor has the leeway to assess the nature of your course outcome and determine if the result was truly due to lack of understanding and demonstrating the skills, or if it was another reason that shouldn’t cause you to be unsuccessful.  Some of those reasons may include dyslexia, not understanding the wording of the test, and ESL participants.  If the instructor ultimately decides that you do not meet the requirements you can contact the office and seek a review.  The review does not promise a favourable result.

Can I take a recertification course?

Recertification is not available for this course.  In order to remain certified you must take the full course prior to the expiration of your certification.
