Updated March 16, 2020
Due to the current pandemic and the desire to protect the health of our students, Focus College is taking measures which incorporate social isolation.
We are suspending our Advanced Diploma and Office Manager courses for the week of March 16-20th, to allow for temporary distance learning to be set up. If any students do not have access to a computer from home, we request that they notify the college immediately. Further information on how courses will be delivered will be available as the week goes on. Please monitor your student email for further information throughout the week.
