Off-Campus Education

Work Experience 15/25/35 (up to 30 credits)

Work experience allows students to gain practical knowledge, enhance their skills, confirm career decisions, and form attitudes that will assist them in their transitions from school to the world of work. Students in grade 10, 11 and 12 can enroll. The prerequisite course HCS 3000 (Workplace Safety Systems) must be completed before any offcampus education credits will be awarded. Existing part-time jobs may be eligible as a work experience placement provided the student can demonstrate new learning is occurring. Prerequisite: HCS 3000

Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) (up to 40 credits)

The Registered Apprenticeship Program is an excellent opportunity for students who know they want to enter a trade to “earn while you learn.” This program usually begins during the summer after grade ten. The student selects a trade and is placed into a 125 hour work experience (5 credits) which serves as a probationary period. Successful students are then indentured and can earn up to 40 Registered Apprentice credits toward graduation. The student’s timetable is adjusted to accommodate the RAP program. By graduation the student can have completed the hours needed for the first year of an apprenticeship and be ready to apply for the training weeks at a post-secondary institution. Prerequisite: HCS 3000 

Green Certificate Program (16 possible credits)

The green Certificate program is a apprenticeship-style training program serving the agricultural industry. There are four areas of specialization:

  1. Cow-calf, Feedlot, Sheep, Swine, Dairy 
  2. Field Crop, Irrigated Crops 
  3. Beekeeping 
  4. Equine

Prerequisite: AGR 3000 

Note

  • Additional information is available from the Off Campus Education Coordinator. All of the above require special programming, planning and timetabling. 
  • In all CTS courses you will have the potential to earn up to 3 credits per term or 6 credits per semester.

  • Students will need Prerequisite CTS credits before moving to a higher levels
