Before the start of the practicum, accepted students will be required to:
In the case of an outbreak, students that do not comply with the immunization guidelines may experience restrictions during the clinical portion of their education by the placement facility, until proof of immunity is provided or until the outbreak is declared over.

Due to the length of time it can take to have the immunizations completed, it is strongly suggested that students interested in applying to the program look into the status of their immunizations at least 6 months prior to the start of the program.
The cost of immunizations and a Criminal Record Check are the responsibility of the student. Students should be aware that the following characteristics are strongly recommended to be successful in the MDRT program:
A minimum grade of "B" in MDRT 100 and successful completion ("S") of MDRT 110 is required to graduate from the Medical Device Reprocessing Technician Associate Certificate program.
