Work Practicum

The Rehabilitation Assistant program features a Work Practicum placement in a local workplace which provides students with on-the-job training and experience. Students will apply skills learned in the classroom and develop new skills through working within an actual employer’s facility. Work Practicum placements may involve hours outside of the regular work day. Students must be available for work placements between the hours of 7:30 am and 5:30 pm.

Students will require the following clearances in advance of the Work Practicum:

  •         Police Information Check (PIC) and Vulnerable Sector (VS) check;
  •         Child Abuse Registry check; and
  •         Adult Abuse Registry check. 

The PIC must be dated within six months of the start of the Work Practicum to be valid; therefore, students may require another PIC clearance for their second rotation. 

An up-to-date immunization record (as per the WRHA Guidelines for Health Care Workers), as well as a current PHIA certificate, an Emergency First Aid and Health Care Provider CPR certificate, N95 Mask fitting, WHMIS training, Violence Protection Program Training, and a Non-Violent Crisis Intervention certificate (NVCI) are required for the Work Practicum eligibility. Please refer to the supply list for the associated costs and training scheduling provisions.

MITT does not guarantee a work practicum placement and in such situations, the Institute may explore alternative options for program completion with a student. MITT also reserves the right to assign students to out-of-town placements including remote Regional Health Authority facilities (such as The Pas, Thompson, and Churchill). Students will be responsible for all transportation and accommodation costs associated with the assigned placement.
