We are also pleased to be able to offer an expanded range of Dual Credit courses within the CT Center and our CMHS site. Dual Credit courses provide students with the opportunity to complete advanced coursework for Post-Secondary Studies.
There are multiple reasons for the consideration of the courses provided. First, successful completion of these courses may be credited towards degrees, diplomas or 1st or 2nd year trade credentialing. Second, Dual-Credential courses may offer students the chance to gain real life experiences at the Post-Secondary level. Recent studies show a significant impact in future success rates amongst students who have completed University, College or Trade level courses while in high school.
In most cases, the Government of Alberta pays the majority of the cost of programing as this is a recent endeavor, more information will be available on our website.
Credential and Post-Secondary
Students enrolled at the credential level complete first-period technical training courses in support of the journeyman certification in welding, hairstyling, autobody, cooking, baking and automotives. Students are encouraged to challenge the first-period technical exams when their technical training is complete. The exams are managed and certified by Alberta Industry and Training (AIT).
