Attendance, Leave Of Absence, Assessment And Grading Policies
Students are expected to attend classes as scheduled as they would be expected to be present for work. Absences and tardiness will be recorded. Students failing to maintain satisfactory attendance will be counseled by the Director. If attendance fails to improve, the training programme director, acting at the discretion of the school management, may dismiss a student for unsatisfactory attendance. Re-admittance may be permitted if the cause of unsatisfactory attendance has been corrected. Makeup class work may be arranged by the student with approval of the instructor. 

The progress or grading system by which a student can be evaluated and compared with another taking the same course is Pass / Fail. A certificate of completion will be issued upon satisfactory completion of the course. It is expected that you attend all sessions unless there is an emergency. Each day has its own unique life in the training, and the work, as we present it, is developmental so each day leads specifically into the next. Also, as an important member of a group learning environment, your absence will be felt. If you must miss a session or a day, inform the office and inform another group member who will give this information to the teacher. The information below specifies the minimum attendance requirements for our training programme:

Level One:
Students must attend 90% of the total hours in order to graduate.

Leave of Absence: Students enrolled in our training programs are permitted to take a leave of absence that amounts to a maximum 15% of the total amount of hours of the training program. If a students exceeds this maximum, he or she will be advised to leave the program and re-apply for the next training. Refunds are prorated.

Complaint Procedures
 If a student has a problem with a teacher or another student, he/she should first address the issue with the appropriate party. If a satisfactory resolution is not met, an active listening session between the parties with a mediator will be held upon request.

If a student has a problem with the training program the student should deliver a verbal or written statement of his/her complaint to the office which will be reviewed and answered by the Assistant Director, within one week of the complaint.
