Textbooks

The instructor will distribute required course workbooks and handouts at no additional cost to the student.

Work practicum

Qualifying students apply skills learned in the classroom and develop new skills, during a mandatory full-time, four-week work practicum with a local business/employer that has been arranged by the Manitoba Tourism Education College. As per IRCC, students must have a co-op work permit to be eligible for the work practicum. It is the students responsibility to apply for the co-op work permit at least four months before the practicum begins.

Work practicum is a mandatory component of this program. Students must meet all program eligibility criteria to qualify for practicum. MITT does not guarantee practicum placements when students do not meet eligibility criteria (including having a valid co-op work permit) or when sufficient placements are not available. In such situations, MITT will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.

Policy Information

Applicants and students of the Sales and Event Coordinator program will be subject to MITT's admission, financial and withdrawal policies throughout the application process and duration of the program. Students will also be responsible to adhere to MTEC's academic policies such as attendance, academic integrity, safety, and appropriate conduct as outlined by MTEC on the first day of the program.

Important Information

COVID-19 Response

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.

Continuous Program Improvement

MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.
