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.

MITT cannot accept Police Information Check documentation completed outside of Manitoba.
PIC, VS and abuse registries clearances are only deemed valid for a maximum period of six months and must cover the entire Work Practicum duration (e.g., end date). Year 2 students must submit new pre-practicum clearance documentation as these are annual requirements.
Some practicum sites may have mandatory COVID vaccination requirements or require unvaccinated students to participate in on-going regular COVID-19 testing pursuant to Public Health orders.
You are responsible for all costs associated in meeting these pre-practicum clearances.
