Update: Red Deer College transitions to online delivery, cancels all in-class learning

RDC’s School of Trades and Technologies will continue in-person classes Monday and Tuesday

Upon direction provided by the Government of Alberta at 4:30 pm Sunday, all Red Deer College classes are now cancelled. This cancellation now includes all Apprenticeship classes within RDC’s School of Trades and Technologies.

Red Deer College’s main and downtown campuses will remain open, and all employees are expected to attend work.

RDC plans to begin online and remote delivery of RDC’s classes starting Wednesday. Any updates to this timing will be shared with RDC students and placed on RDC’s COVID-19 webpage. Students will receive specific information and instructions from each of their class and practicum instructors, as soon as possible early this week.

We understand these are stressful times, and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we work together to determine solutions that work in our college community, RDC said in a statement Sunday evening.
