2021/2022 Annual Industrial Response Enrolment

Note: The data reported in the table below was captured on September 1, 2022 and includes enrolments during the period September 1, 2021 – August 31, 2022.

Enrolment¹ 5,685
Full-Time Equivalent² 900

¹ Enrolment in industrial response courses as of 2019/20 has been impacted by the COVID‐19 pandemic and related public‐health measures.
Enrolment includes all course section registrations (i.e. if a student registers for two course sections, they will be counted twice) and includes students taking industrial response courses as part of their MI diploma or certificate program.

² Comparing enrolment in short courses to full-time undergraduate students requires calculating an Annual Full-Time Equivalent (FTE). This is done by comparing contact hours. A full-time undergraduate student at Memorial University has a minimum of 234 contact hours per year (13 weeks x 9 credit hours x 2 semesters). In short courses, each training day is seven contact hours. Industrial Response Annual FTE, therefore, is calculated as the total number of training days multiplied by seven and then divided by 234. For example, a five-day short course with 12 students is the equivalent of 1.79 Annual FTEs [(5*12*7) / 234] = 1.79].
