Some health professionals are starting back to clinical practice, as provinces start to reopen. However, social distancing measures and restrictions on the numbers of people allowed to gather, continue to be in effect. Due to this situation, Acupuncture Canada must continue to postpone the onsite component of upcoming courses and exams. We want to ensure the safety of students and instructors in the midst of this pandemic. We will continue to review the situation and as soon as we can safely hold the in-person components of courses and exams, we will. At this point we don’t see that being prior to June 30th, and that timeline could be extended. We will continue to communicate changes as information becomes available from provincial and national health authorities, and regulatory bodies.
Once new dates are announced for courses and exams, if you are unable to attend, we will transfer you to a future offering. We hope to have these rescheduled onsite sessions happen in summer or early fall but we’re monitoring the situation in regards to social distancing and will plan accordingly.
Acupuncture Canada is a not-for-profit organization and the decisions we are making are in consultation with our volunteer board of directors – a group of regulated health professionals who, like you, are experiencing the challenges personally and professionally that this pandemic has created. Our goals are to keep students and instructors safe while offering quality skills training, and to keep the organization healthy into the future. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.
