Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)

Attention ND students considering entering into the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP):  The Lather-Interior Systems Mechanic Showcase, hosted by  Bishop Grandin High School ( 111 Haddon Road SE, Calgary) will occur on April 29th, 2015 at 6:30 pm.

The Alberta Wall & Ceiling Association (AWCA) has already confirmed more than 9 companies with 20+ RAP positions this summer.

BGHS is encouraging all students interested in construction trades to attend. “It is like a carpenter, but with steel.”

To register, students are required to provide name, school, and contact info (email, phone). They can text or email the following contact: Mr. Dan Olesen at  [mailto:DOlesen@nextgen.org]

This is an excellent opportunity for our students considering employment in the field of CTS —  There will be over 20 summer positions available and although it is called RAP, the student is really doing a work experience until they decide if they want to be indentured.  This is a great opportunity for a good summer job as summer jobs will be limited this year. RAP positions will be tough to acquire in current employment markets. Students considering any trade related to construction and welding should have an interest in attending!!!

AWCA puts forth a great presentation, companies bring tools and examples of their work. Interested students will have an opportunity to sign up for an interview.

Students attending will be given priority for interview selection.  A proactive opportunity for our students would be to bring copies of their resume to this venue should an opportunity be presented.

Please see the documents below for more information.
