New Classroom Policies and Procedures
As always, your safety is a top priority. If you are attending an in-person class you will have a new classroom experience, designed to keep you safe and comfortable. Classroom procedures follow state and local public health guidance and ensure the best learning experience possible.
To attend class, you must wear a face covering at all times except for designated breaks to eat or drink in designated areas.
- Face coverings with a valve are not allowed.
- If the policy is violated, learners will receive up to 2 warnings before being asked to leave class and may not be permitted to participate in any further training modules.

Face Covering Policy
Based on available evidence and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the World Health Organization, we have defined a Face Covering Policy for learners to establish appropriate safety standards in the classroom.
All face coverings must meet each of the following specifications:
- Consist of at least two layers of breathable material.
- Fully cover the nose and mouth.
- Fit snugly against the sides of the face.
- Secured with ear loops or with a tie or band around the back of the head.
- Do not include any of the following: valves, loose weaves, mesh materials, or holes of any kind in or on the mask.
- No neck gaiters.
- Clean and dry.
Face coverings should be worn at all times except for designated breaks to eat or drink in designated areas.
Learners who violate the Face Covering Policy will be given up to 2 warnings before being asked to leave class and may not be permitted to participate in any further training modules.
We cannot accommodate learners who are unable to wear a face covering that complies with all of the above requirements due to the lack of a reasonable accommodation that complies with CDC or other scientific standards.
Valve masks do NOT protect others, and are NOT accepted in class or exams. Masks with valves provide one-way protection, meaning they only protect the wearer. A cloth or surgical mask works just as well, and protects everyone.
