#4 - Are there changes in program delivery due to COVID-19?


Due to the intensive, hands on nature of MITT’s programs and the importance of on-campus delivery for students’ success, MITT will be delivering your program in a blended delivery model, with some course components online and hands-on learning on campus.

Due to the challenges raised by COVID-19, MITT reserves the right to alter course delivery methods and/or program durations. Course deliveries may require increased percentages of online/distance learning components, alternatives to work practicums, and extended program durations to accommodate physical distancing and work practicum placement restrictions. MITT will be providing an exceptional level of enhanced student and program supports to ensure this modified program experience continues to meet all required learning outcomes for your program.
