The Registered Apprenticeship Program enables senior high school students, over the age of 15, the opportunity to start an apprenticeship program while still attending high school.
Students who choose to participate in this program must maintain an overall academic average of 65% or greater and must have excellent school attendance and conduct.
These opportunities allow students to gain real hands-on experience in their trade of choice and complete their 1st year apprenticeship while in high school. Therefore, these students need to be very mature, determined and focused.
