Part-time Technical Vocational Program – COVID-19 and FAQs

March 18, 2020

Part-time Technical Vocational Student,

Please be advised that Red River College has decided to cancel all part-time courses for the Winter 2 term of the Part-time Technical Vocational Teacher Education Program.

This decision was made as a concerted effort to keep everyone safe and available for immediate personal and work related concerns. Technical Vocational students are primarily teachers and instructors 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 courses currently registered. See exceptions below.

We are currently reviewing our Spring/Summer schedule to ensure that needed prerequisites are provided. We will be in touch with each of you when more information is available.

The two exceptions are

  • The cohort section of EDUC-1094 Course Development
  • The online section of EDUC-1093 Organizing Technical Educational Facilities

These courses will still be offered using entirely online delivery. If you do not wish to take these courses at this time, simply withdraw using this form: https://www.rrc.ca/supports/student-records/withdrawal-part-time/

Please see our Frequently Asked Question below. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact Daryl McRae, Part-time Technical Vocational Program Coordinator at dmcrae@rrc.ca.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR PART-TIME TECHNICAL VOCATIONAL PROGRAM 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 two exceptions are:

  • The cohort section of EDUC-1094 Course Development
  • The online section of EDUC-1093 Organizing Technical Educational Facilities

These courses will still be offered using entirely online delivery. If you do not wish to take these courses at this time, 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.
