RAP and Work Experience
RAP AND WORK EXPERIENCE
For all students wanting to register in RAP or Work Experience, a mandatory one credit course, HCS 3000 Workplace Safety Systems Course, must be completed before you can register or earn any credits. The course typically takes between one and three hours and can be completed on your phone, tablet or computer. You will need your Alberta Student Number which can be found on your school ID card.
Work Experience is an opportunity to earn credits while you are working or involved in a recognized volunteer program.
- HCS3000 must be completed
- One credit is awarded for every 25 hours of work.
- A contract signed by your employer and parent/guardian must be in place.
- Students may earn up to 15 credits towards graduation, and an additional 15 credits for their transcripts.
- Students are responsible for submitting all of their pay statements and all documentation promptly. Failing to do so may impact the awarding of credits. This is wholly the student's responsibility.
- The first 10 credits are awarded at the 30 or grade 12 level.
