QMAP MEMO: Online QMAP Course Requirement Change

During a recent review of the current requirements for the new QMAP online course, concern was raised about computer access to the online QMAP course for all potential candidates. Potential candidates in rural and more remote areas that do not own personal computers may not have easy access to public computers. Therefore, the Division determined that the online course should not be mandatory until the impact could be evaluated further. 

The Division hopes that instructors will continue to encourage QMAP candidates to take the online course prior to the classroom course, as a good pre-training resource. QMAP candidates and others have overwhelmingly provided positive feedback after completing the online training. 

As a reminder, anyone can opt out of the classroom portion of the QMAP class and take the two required tests: (1) written exam and (2) hands-on practicum. 

We apologize for any confusion this may have caused, and are happy to address any concerns you may have.
