Police Information and Child Intervention Check
In preparation for practicum, you will be required, at your own expense, to obtain a criminal record check from the Calgary Police. A practicum agency may accept or reject a student for placement or observation experience based on the results of a criminal record or other background check. Students are encouraged to discuss any concerns they may have with the Field Director or Department Chair.
