RFP Courses Are Running!
Posted March 4, 2021

The Provincial Government's "Path Forward" and how this transcends to the RFP course(s) does allow RFP to provide training in recreation facilities. Under the current Health Order (04-2021) in place we are able to offer certification/recertification courses.

For your reference, click here for the current Public Health Order. Please refer to page 9, Section 43 and point (n) which states we are able to access facilities (which would otherwise be closed) in order to certify/recertify staff. This sections states:

Part 7- Businesses and entities:
43. Section 42 of this Order does not prevent a place of business or entity listed or described in sections 1 and 3 of Appendix A from being used:
    (n) as a location for educational, professional or employment examination or certification activities, including but not limited to a location where recertification training or exams may occur;

As we are seeing a significant demand for staff training/certification courses, RFP is pleased we are able to continue offering courses under the current Health Orders. Should this change at anytime, we will inform our course hosts, students and general membership.

If you have any questions/concerns about RFP's COVID-19 procedures, please do not hesitate to contact office@aarfp.com. Our classes will be set up with 2 metre distancing in place and all health regulations will be followed.

Hockey's Path Forward
