Please read what's below before coming to your first class.
Observation Exercise: Tap the image, answer questions A-B-C, and bring your answers (exact # for A) to your first class.
Weather Prep: Every class has outdoor activities. Before you come to each class, check the hourly weather forecast (link below) and bring what's needed (umbrella? jacket?) for the outdoors.
Arrival: Arrive before 10 a.m. because each class begins on time with an outdoor activity. If part of an activity is missed, you may need to reserve a seat in a future class (sometimes months before a seat is available) if you want an ICBC Course Completion Certificate.
Worksheets: During each class you'll receive Worksheets (5.5 hours) that are prerequisites for your next class. If your Worksheets are not completed in time, reserve a seat in a future class and pick up the newest Worksheets at the class just before the rebooked class.
Course Dynamics: Some of the course dynamics are based on the instructor's experiences with Greyhound, Canada Safety Council, Vancouver Police Department (Victim Services Unit), Dalhousie University, BC Ministry of Attorney General, Justice Institute of BC, Vancouver Community College, and Class 2/3/6 vehicles (tour buses, intercity buses, trucks, limousines, taxis, motorcycles).
Masks: As specified in the BC guidelines (link below), students wear masks unless they qualify for an exemption. The instructor does not wear a mask because it interferes with some students' assimilation of what's being communicated. Here's a quote from the BC guidelines:
A mask is not required "while providing a service to a person with a disability or diverse ability (including but not limited to a hearing impairment), where visual cues, facial expressions and/or lip reading/movements are important."
