COVID-19

Due to the pandemic, CE Institute LLC will be instituting policies that must be followed by all students and instructors to ensure the safest environment possible to hold class.  These policies may change over time to ensure best practices.  This will include the following policies:

  • No one will be allowed in class or on campus with a fever or any outward signs of illness.
  • Face covering will be required at all times while on campus.  The school will provide face coverings.  Anyone may bring a new packaged face covering to class and unwrap it in front of the instructor to use (if it seems acceptable to the instructor).  We cannot allow used or unwrapped home face coverings in class because we do not have a gauge to determine their cleanliness.
  • Hand sanitizing is required every time entering school and before hands-on practice.
  • Students may wear new gloves on campus.  Used or dirty gloves will not be permitted.  In some cases, the school or instructor may require a student to wear gloves which can be instituted at any time for any reason. The school will provide gloves to any student who wishes to use them, or is required to use them.
  • In most cases, classes will be limited to 12 students (although there may be exceptions for more at the school's discretion).
  • No leaving campus/3rd floor until lunch period (if a lunch period is offered during class).
  • Temperature checks will be required with the entry to campus, every 2 hours of class and/or at any time any appearance of outward signs of illness are observed.  Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater will be required to leave campus/class with a pro-rated refund.  A contactless thermometer will be used by the instructor and provided by the school.
  • 6 feet social distancing required during lecture, theory, break time and lunch period.
  • Students will be required to regularly wipe down/sanitize their desks, tables and other fixtures used during class.  The school will provide all sanitation items.
  • The school will provided linens for students to use if they participate in hands-on practice.  Students may not bring or use their own linens.
  • Excessive baggage is not permitted on campus.  Please do not bring anything other than your required medications or other absolute essential items.  We will not allow students bags or other personal property in the school campus.
  • The school will frequently using chemical wipes, sprays and other sanitation materials regularly, before, after and throughout the class.  Students who do not wish for this chemical exposure should seek a different school.
  • Students may be required to provide a doctor's note of health after completing the health questionnaire.
  • Class times/dates may be changed or be cancelled due to low enrollment or any other school needs or requirements such as limiting the amount of time a student remains in the learning environment per day.
  • Any other government requirements or mandates.

___ I give consent for hands-on practice in this class knowing there is potential risk of COVID-19 transmission.  I will receive full credit for attending the class regardless of hands-on practice or participation.

I will receive full credit for attending the class regardless of hands-on practice or participation.
