- Some courses in this program will require math as a pre-requisite (e.g. “C” in Pre-calculus 11, Foundations of Math 11, Applications of Math 12, MATH 077, MATH 137, or MATH 073; or “C+” in MATH 075, MATH 135 or MATH 072).

Camosun will send you information on how to complete your Criminal Record Check after you've been accepted to your program. CRC's completed outside of the college process are not accepted. You are responsible for all associated costs.
Notes: The work environment in which you'll be employed requires demanding manual techniques and extensive hand washing. If you have back, neck, or arm injury or serious skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis or latex allergy you should consider carefully before making an application to this program.
