Alberta Education has revised Career and Technology Studies (CTS) apprenticeship courses within the existing Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) apprenticeship occupational areas.
CTS apprenticeship courses were revised because Advanced Education’s Apprenticeship and Industry Training Division (AIT) approved new industry course outlines that will be implemented in September 2020.
These courses help create opportunities for young Albertans to learn practical job skills that meet the demands of the labour market, helping students to succeed. The Ministry of Education supports learning opportunities that allow schools to design unique programs that meet students’ needs and leverage community resources.
Education has worked with the ministry of Labour to understand the implications of the recent changes to the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) for school authorities. CTS and CTF resources are available in the “Update Documents” folder.
A three-year transition period will allow suppliers and employers to implement the changes. The training of workers must be site-specific and deal with specific products and procedures used in the workplace. Complete information about the changes is available from WHMIS.org: Canada’s National WHMIS Portal.
