Professional Development & Training

We have amended the Professional Development and Training Policy

The policies can be found here on page 115.

If professional development and training is desired:

  1. Once an employee has identified specific training, they need to complete and submit a Request for Professional Development form (Appendix 27) to their Program Manager for feedback and recommendations or in the case of Program Managers to the Executive Director.
  1. The Program Manager, in conjunction with the Executive Director, is responsible for approving all Lifetime Networks training and funding.
  1. If an employee has received approval for training requiring funding from Lifetime Networks, the employee will be required to complete and sign an Employee Training Reimbursement Agreement (Appendix 41).

If you have questions about the above please contact Frances Lawrence, HR Facilitator at frances@Lnv.ca or 250-477-4112 ext 305.
