Student Conduct


Consistent with the standard Code of Conduct Practice of Respect, NFHTA considers hateful, inflammatory, and person-directed derogatory comments to be unacceptable behavior in NFHTA courses. Parties involved in such behavior may be immediately removed from the course at the discretion of the instructor. Depending on the nature of the incident, the individual may be barred from future participation in NFHTA courses at the discretion of the NFHTA staff. This determination is made on a case-by-case basis and NFHTA reserves the right to change this policy at any given time without prior notification.


Attendance and Participation

Attendance and participation are vital to success in NFHTA training courses. NFHTA believes learning takes place in a cooperative environment with students and the instructor. NFHTA instructors plan a rich variety of interactive classroom learning techniques to help students master the course work and apply the lessons learned in the classroom to professional situations.

Students are expected to attend all class sessions and fully participate in discussion and activities. The input of peers may provide the missing link for a classmate’s understanding.


Meeting Deadlines

Each instructor’s syllabus will explain when assignments are due.

Students are accountable for staying on track with the schedule outlined in the syllabus.

Students should immediately communicate with their instructor if an emergency may affect the ability to successfully complete the course.


Academic Integrity

Students must recognize and acknowledge NFTHA’s policy on academic integrity. Acts of dishonesty such as fraud, cheating, plagiarism, forgery, and other forms of academic misconduct will not be tolerated. Violation of academic standards negatively impacts the instructor’s ability to promote learning. When submitting coursework to instructors, students are acknowledging that the work being submitted is their own. Students who violate the policy will be unenrolled from the course.
