The High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP) lets you start apprenticeship while you are still in high school. It links regular Senior Years school instruction with paid, part-time, on-the-job apprenticeship training. You need a qualified and insured employer who will train you as an apprentice.

The HSAP coordinator at Apprenticeship Manitoba will work with you, your employer, and your school Guidance Counsellor to ensure that you meet all academic graduation requirements, and that you're scheduled for work when you are not taking required high school classes.

Depending on the high school, you can find numerous HSAPs within Manitoba. Visit these links to learn which school offer Apprenticeship Manitoba accredited programming in your trade.
