Students with unacceptable background checks can be dropped from the course/training. The Continuing & Workforce Ed. Dept. will keep confidential all information obtained from these background checks. Students with histories which cause exclusion from training will likely find that they are excluded from many medical related careers. Therefore, early completion of this background check process is in the best interest of any student.
