Assessment is reflective of classroom participation, assignments, study projects, practicum and examination results. You must achieve an 85 percent overall grade average and attendance of 90 percent in each course to earn the certificate.
In order to qualify for the practicum module, students must have successfully completed RM modules 01 – 08 and met the attendance requirements.
Students who qualify for the practicum modules will be assigned a practicum site by UFV Continuing Education that provides our students with meaningful work-like experience and exposure to the field of Records Management.
Practicum placements reflect the business practices of the practicum host, which includes placement during standard business hours. Transportation to the practicum site is the responsibility of the student and may require travel outside of a student’s community of residence. Students who refuse an assigned practicum site will be required to find their own site and obtain departmental approval prior to the start of their practicum.
Please communicate any barriers that may affect practicum assignment with UFV Continuing Education immediately after registering.
