Orientation Information

     

Update – April 2020

The COVID-19 outbreak has necessitated a review of all in-person education and orientation sessions to ensure risk to staff and others are minimized. Recruitment of new employees is ongoing and so is the need to orientate and train these new staff. As a result, all classroom sessions for VCH Regional Orientation have been moved to online/ virtual via the Learning HUB platform (with certain exceptions, such as IV labs and Provincial Violence Prevention class which have been cancelled until further notice).

Process:

  1. VCH Orientation Online: (process unchanged) All new employees must complete VCH Orientation Online which contains all mandatory courses. Recruitment sends instructions and link to LHUB curriculum that is applicable to your role.
  2. VCH Orientation Classroom: (now Virtual) New employees registered by their manager or delegate for further learning will receive an email confirmation of their orientation schedule, with a link to the new VCH orientation virtual course on Learning HUB. This email will include instructions on how to complete remote learning package applicable to their role and contact for assistance.

Signing In

Staff must arrive 5 – 10 minutes before sessions to sign-in (attendees are required to sign in for each session). These sign-in sheets are used to record the training history on LearningHub.

IMPORTANT: In order to be paid, the employee must also sign-in with their unit (flow sheet) or department each day that they attend VCH Orientation (with the exception of excluded staff). If the unit/department is not on site, staff should call or email the educator, manager or office administrator to confirm attendance.
