Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)
The Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) is an apprenticeship program for high school students.
RAP is an opportunity for a focused student to get a jump start on a career in the trades through building their skill-set and accumulating hours towards their bluebook. There are over 50 certified trades in Alberta that students can apprentice in. Check out this site to see what apprenticeships are available
A RAP student goes through an application process and must be accepted into the program based on their attendance, their grades, their attitude and a teacher reference, as well as a fully completed application form.
Students are responsible to find their own placements. We advise students to approach employers with their resume and cover letter. This networking is vital in finding opportunities in the Trades. Careers Next Generation can also help students find a RAP position in Alberta. Check this out for more information.
Once you are a RAP student and you are ready to apply for your bluebook, make an appointment with Mrs. Zelmer and apply here.
