Work Experience Programming

RAP Program

Senior high school students have the opportunity to earn up to 40 high school credits and gain on-the-job experience toward an apprenticeship program through the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP).

How it Works

Students can work in a trade of their choice part-time during the whole school year, for a semester, on weekends and holidays, or through the summer. As they work they will earn wages and up to 40 high school credits. RAP students can also earn on-the-job apprenticeship hours.

The Green Certificate Program provides trainees with opportunities to enter a variety of agriculture-related, structured learning pathways as a part of their senior high school program and to earn up to 16 Grade 12 diploma credits and a credential that could lead to a career in agriculture or agri-business.

The Green Certificate Program oversees all aspects of program delivery. (Source: Alberta Government).
