Attendance, Deferral and Withdrawal Policy

Attendance policy 

Students are required to attend class a minimum of eighty percent (80%) of the total program hours. 

A student will be terminated if he/she is absent for more than twenty percent (20%) of the total program hours or for failure to return from an approved leave of absence. If a student is terminated for violation of the attendance policy, the student may not reenter until the beginning of a new term.


Deferrals, withdrawals and termination


Students who wish to defer their training or exams may do so, with a written letter stating the reason for their deferral with supporting documents to show the validity of their request.  The letter can be emailed, sent via courier or post or handed in to a faculty member.


Students who wish to withdraw from school should complete a withdrawal form and give supporting documents for illness, pregnancy, or family emergency.

The Healing Zone Training Centre will terminate a student’s enrollment for failure to meet probation standards, attendance standards, excessive absenteeism, or disruptive behavior.


Any student who has been dropped for disruptive behavior will not be re-admitted to school.  Any student who has been dropped for unsatisfactory progress may be re-admitted to school after one grading period.  Any student who withdraws for reasons other than disruptive behavior or unsatisfactory progress will be re-admitted after evaluation by the principal.

Sickness and leave of absence

Two approved leaves of absence are available for each student, for special circumstances, during a long-term program that is 500 or more contact hours.  A written request must be submitted by the student to principal explaining the reason for the requested leave of absence.  The principal will schedule a meeting with the student to discuss and/or approve the leave request.  If a student fails to return from a leave of absence at the scheduled time, the student will be terminated.  Students enrolled in short-term programs are not eligible for leave of absences.
