Can I use my work experience as placement attendance?

Placements are designed to meet program outcomes. Work experience is usually directed by the employer and does not align with program outcomes. This generally means that it is unlikely that you will be able to use work experience as placement hours. If you feel that you should be entitled to exemption or credit on the basis of work experience you should discuss this with your Course Coordinator.
