  • Work experience
  • Advanced document preparation and research skills for post-secondary education 
  • Practical, lifelong skills 
  • Each CTS course is comprised of several modules, where a credit is assigned to each successfully completed module. Marks are assigned when the entire course has been completed.

 CTS Courses are provided in the following fields:

  • Digital Technology / Computer Sciences

  • Food Studies
  • Construction/Woodworking
  • Fabrication/Welding/Blacksmithing


A select group of students have the chance to compete in their field of interest against other high schools in Alberta. This competition is usually held in May at the Expo Centre. It is a great launching pad for anyone interested in a career in the trades. Top two competitors in each field at the regional competition have a chance to compete at the Provincial and National competitions.
