Pre-Practicum Clearance Requirements

To determine practicum eligibility in specific programs, MITT may establish medical and/or non-medical practicum clearance requirements, including:

  • Clear Police Information Check (PIC)/Vulnerable Sector (VS) Check
  • Clear Child and Adult Abuse Registry Checks
  • Current, approved immunization record
  • Valid Co-op Work Permit (international students only)

MITT may prohibit a student from proceeding with a Work Practicum placement and subsequently successfully completing a program based on the findings of their pre-practicum clearance documentation.

Prospective applicants who might not meet one of these requirements must consult with an Academic Coordinator to discuss potential program ramifications before submitting a program admission application.
