Registered Apprentice Program – RAP

Pre-planning for participation in this program begins in Grade 10

The Registered Apprenticeship Program is a modified apprenticeship program that permits a high school student to become an apprentice while attending high school. Beginning at the end of Grade 10, a RAP apprentice spends half a year in school and half a year on the job. While on the job, he/she is paid as a first year apprentice, accumulates hours towards his/her journeyman certificate, and at the same time can earn as many as 40 credits towards a High School Diploma. 

There are 50 apprenticeship trades and crafts currently available in Alberta. Many opportunities exist for high school students with good work habits and attitudes to begin a career as a qualified trades person. Students must complete high school to receive apprenticeship credit.

“It is an extraordinary gift that we can be an example of peace and calm in our students’ lives. We can model what it means to be calm and collected. We can express our fears and vulnerabilities, but do it in a way that inspires hope and resolve for our students (Trevor Muir).” https://t.co/DIFy4ktFGK
