ACADEMIC AND NON-ACADEMIC POLICY

A. GENERAL PURPOSE

The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for the handling Student training deficiencies and non-training deficiencies.

B. STUDENT PROBATIONARY POLICY -TRAINING RELATED

Calgary Flight Training Centre does not possess a formal academic probationary policy given that flight training does not included formal interim assessments, or the review of GPA scores assigned during the training course.  As Flight training is a hands-on undertaking, should the student assigned Flight Instructor become concerned with the rate of progress on an assigned student, this concern will be brought to the attention of the Chief Flight Instructor (CFI), who will then undertake a review of the Students training.

If it is deemed necessary, the Chief Flight Instructor (or qualified delegate) will meet with the student to discuss concerns and assist in developing an appropriate plan to assist the student correcting deficiencies to assist the student in achieving a satisfactory performance.   In extreme circumstances, the student may be advised that the training program is perhaps not suited to them and that perhaps withdrawal from the program should be considered by the students.
