ACP Training Opportunities Update

Dear Members;

Re:       ACP Training Opportunities Update

The September 2020 Posting for ACP training opportunities is fast approaching, please ensure you review the settlement in detail for deadlines and pre-requirements.

I have attached the Settlement Agreement here:

To be clear:

  • There will be 8 ACP training opportunities offered in September 2020, 4 positions will begin training in 2021 and 4 in 2022.
  • There are multiple pre-requirement courses that must be completed prior to application to the posting for the training opportunities, with set deadlines for completion.
  • The requirements for application to the ACP training opportunity posting in September 2020 are outlined in the Settlement Agreement.
  • The JIBC website identifies all prerequired courses for admission to the ACP training program and has set deadlines for completion.
  • The EMA Education Fund Award outlines the application process to receive funds and has set deadlines for completion.

There is no carryover of training positions, there are 4 training opportunities each year, if the positions are not filled the training opportunity is lost.

This is a great opportunity for our membership, and we wish everyone success during the selection process. 

If you have any questions regarding the training opportunities, please feel free to contact your RVP.
