Attendance/Conduct Policy

***For all classes, students are expected to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of class. If a student is late to class more than 3 times they will be marked as absent for 1 full class day. If a student misses class they are expected to notify the school and schedule time to make up the hours.

 

***For the CNA class, all students must complete the total 100 hours, 60 classroom hours and 40 clinical hours. Students are expected to notify the school in the event that they are arriving late. During clinical rotation, tardiness is not acceptable, if a student cannot arrive to clinical early or on time they are not to attend clinical that day and are expected to call the school to reschedule the hours. Instructors have the right to dismiss a student from class/clinical due to inappropriate behavior, tardiness, or if the student is not prepared for class/clinical. If a student misses 2 or more days of class or clinical and does not make up the hours, they will be terminated from class. Academy of Medical Training L.L.C. has a zero tolerance policy for disrespect. Any students whose attitude, behavior or conduct reflects negatively on the faculty, administration, school or fellow students will be dismissed from the program.  Academy of Medical Training L.L.C. treats all employees and students with respect and expects the same in return.

Cheating and plagiarism will not be tolerated and are grounds for immediate dismissal. Students who are dismissed from the program for any of the above reasons, will not be given a refund and are liable for the entire tuition payment. If the clinical site has a quarantine or has an issue for which it must not allow students to enter, Academy of Medical Training L.L.C. will contact each student and reschedule the missed hours based on the availability of the staff and the facility hours of operation. *Please note that students are not allowed to leave class or clinical without informing and asking permission from the instructor.
