(up to 40 credits)

The Registered Apprenticeship Program allows students to earn high school credits while employed as apprentices in one of Alberta’s 52 certified trades.  RAP students may work part time, or they may work full time for one semester in grade 11 and 12 and attend classes for the other semester. Five credits are granted for every 125 hours worked towards the student’s apprenticeship and they earn minimum wage or more, depending on their job. 

Many RAP students begin their RAP program in the summer after grade 10, but can also begin in the summer after grade 11.  Information about the summer program will be available at school in March, or from Careers: the Next Generation.

Potential apprentices wishing to be a RAP student are encouraged to find a suitable job with a journeyman willing to apprentice them.  Some support for this job search is available upon request.

RAP students can earn up to 40 high school credits toward their diploma requirements.  It is possible for a RAP student to complete their first year apprenticeship hours will in high school, becoming a second year apprentice after graduation.  This is a significant head start on their career path and provides a real earning power advantage.

Students interested in apprenticing in the trades, please contact their Counsellor or the Off Campus Coordinator.
