Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)

Traditionally, apprenticeships in Alberta began following high school graduation, however, some students identify their career interests at an earlier age and are ready to learn and practice their future trade while still in high school. RAP is an ideal program for these students.

RAP students are both full-time students and registered apprentices, dividing their time between an approved work site and their high school studies. They take regular courses such as English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and Math in order to earn their Alberta High School Diploma or Certificate of Achievement.

The time a RAP student spends at school and on the work site can be quite flexible. The student, school and employer jointly agree on a suitable schedule. The student may work as a RAP apprentice for a semester, for half of each school day, or for one or two days per week, or during summers, holidays and weekends.

The RAP apprenticeship ends when the RAP apprentice completes high school. The RAP apprentice is then automatically registered as a regular apprentice and the credit earned while in RAP is applied to his or her apprenticeship through the apprenticeship program.

Contact the RAP coordinator, Ms. Westgard for more information.  Click here for the RAP Brochure and more information
