High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP) enables students to earn up to
eight grade 12 credits and up to 880 hours of on-the-job training towards
continued apprenticeship training after graduation. Mature Diploma students can
earn a maximum of six credits and 660 hours. Depending on school timetable,
students may be able to do paid work during the day, evening, or weekend. Summer
work can count too.
Students must work a minimum of 110 hours towards apprenticeship in any of
over 40 designated trades to receive one credit. Students must maintain a grade
of 70% or higher on their workplace evaluations.
Combining ATC and HSAP allows students registered at ATC to enroll in HSAP
for their paid trade-related evening, weekend and summer work. Students can
combine the hours earned through both programs for a significant start on

What about insurance?
While working on the job, students are employees of the employer and the
employer is required to provide insurance coverage. If the trade is deemed
compulsory by Workers Compensation, students must receive Workers Compensation
coverage from Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba. Where the employer is
within a non-compulsory trade, then it is the employer’s responsibility to
provide insurance comparable to provincial Workers Compensation coverage.
Students who are working for a parent or guardian may apply for an insurance
waiver. If an accident occurs, the employer should inform the Louis Riel School
Division HSAP teacher and follow standard accident procedures.
