Certificate in Adult Education – COVID-19 Update and FAQs

March 18, 2020

CAE Student,

Please be advised that Red River College has decided to cancel all Certificate in Adult Education, face to face and online courses for the Winter 2 term (March 23 – May 15, 2020).

This decision was made as a concerted effort to keep everyone safe and available for immediate personal and work related concerns. CAE students are primarily instructors and trainers themselves who will be busy converting their own face to face courses to alternate remote delivery formats as well as addressing childcare needs, work-from-home plans, and the like.

We will automatically withdraw you from all Winter 2 courses in which you are registered. See exception below.

We are currently reviewing our Spring/Summer schedule to minimize the potential disruption to your program progression plans. We will be in touch with each of you when more information is available.

The one exception is PRAC-1865 Portfolio Workshop. This course will still be offered using entirely online delivery. If you do not wish to take a course at this time simply withdraw using this form: https://www.rrc.ca/supports/student-records/withdrawal-part-time/

Please see the list of Frequently Asked Questions below. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Judy McGuirk, CAE Program Coordinator at jmcguirk@rrc.ca.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR CAE CANCELLATION OF WINTER 2 CLASSES

Why are classes cancelled? This decision is grounded in a concerted effort to keep everyone safe and available for more immediate personal and work related concerns.

Do I have to submit a withdrawal form to be removed from the class? No. We have taken care of that for you. You do not need to do anything.

The one exception is PRAC-1865 Portfolio Workshop. This course will still be offered using entirely online delivery, for those students who still wish to take it. There is no pressure to do so. If you do not wish to take it at the moment, simply withdraw using this form: https://www.rrc.ca/supports/student-records/withdrawal-part-time/

If I have already paid for this course, how & when will I get a refund? If you have already paid for your course, you will be eligible for a refund. We ask for your patience as we work to address the many cancellations that are being processed.

Will the spring term also be cancelled? At this point, we are only cancelling classes for the Winter 2 term.

I was scheduled to take a course in Winter 2 that is a prerequisite for other course. Will this hold me back? We will be reviewing the impact of cancelling Winter 2 courses and, where possible, adjusting the schedule to ensure a smooth continuance to your program.

When will I know the revised Spring/Summer schedule? Please continue to check this site often for updates.

Will all courses in the Spring/Summer be online? This is the most likely scenario. If this is the case, 1 and 2 week courses will be delivered over an 8 week period.
