    Work Experience 15/25/35 (From 3-30 Credits)

    Prerequisite: HCS 3000

    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 off-campus 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.

    Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)

    Prerequisite: HCS 3000

    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 the grade 10 school year. 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 students 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.
