2018 Grads recieve RAP Scholarship
Mitchell Kramer and Dalton Sauder graduated in June 2018 and participated in the Registered Apprenticeship Program (R.A.P) while attending FHS. Both have received a scholarship of $1000.00 from Alberta Advanced Education Apprenticeship and Industry Training. R.A.P. Scholarships were created to recognize the accomplishments of Alberta high school students participating in this program
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 RAP apprenticeship ends when the RAP apprentice finishes high school. The RAP apprentice is then automatically registered as a regular apprentice and the credit earned while in the RAP program is applied to his or her apprenticeship through the apprenticeship program.
Peter Scheidegger, Service Manager of Prairie Coast says “With the shortage of skilled labour in our industry it is very important to have a built relationship with the RAP program. Having students start out at a young age in this industry has been very successful for our business. We have had several RAP students that are now fully certified technicians employed at our store. Training technicians through this program has been a success.”
