RAP Information Night set for Nov. 21 at Winston Churchill High School

The Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) provides students with the opportunity to explore career options in trades while students are in high school. 

Students can start working as an apprentice in one of Alberta’s 50 trades.

Ironworkers Local 725, in partnership with Career Transitions, will again run the Introduction to Ironworking - Trades and Climate Change Program. Students in the program will get hands-on training in rebar, fabrication, hoisting/rigging and safety tickets. Applications are being accepted now.

The RAP Information Night on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at Winston Churchill High School (inside the music room) is a chance to hear from RAP ambassadors and learn how to sign up for this rewarding program.

The information night goes from 7-9 p.m.

Student benefits of the RAP program include being able to earn up to 40 high school credits, gaining valuable works experience and employability skills and earning a way. Worked hours are used towards apprenticeship training.
