RAP Students

REGISTERED APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

WHAT IS RAP

STEP 1 : CONNECTING YOUTH TO BUSINESS

The Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) provides students with the opportunity to begin their apprenticeship training in any of the 50+ apprenticeable trades while still in high school. RAP works with school Off-Campus Coordinators to match suitable student apprentices to available internships, making the link between student and employer.

STUDENTS IN GRADES 10 - 12

WHO CAN JOIN?

STEP 2 : ELIGIBILITY

Does getting a jump start on your career while in high school appeal to you? Consider joining RAP. We will help any eager & willing student focus on their future journey.

Students successful in the RAP can earn up to 40 credits towards their high school diploma and their first stage of their Alberta Apprenticeship
and Industry Training hours.

Unsure what trade is the best fit for you? We recommend researching career trades that align with your interests. Your Off-Campus Coordinators are there to help you on your journey. Visit them today!
