School within a College (SWAC)

School within a College (SWAC) is a program available to Grade 12 students in their second semester. This unique opportunity allows our students to attend technical training classes at Red Deer College (RDC) starting in February.

This is a pre-employment program, which runs for six hours a day. Students earn nineteen 30 level credits. Students in the program have an opportunity to train with their college instructors for other opportunities, such as Regional Alberta Skills Competitions. At the competition of the course, students are prepared to challenge their first-period apprenticeship exam. Pre-planning is vital to students being accepted into this program, as they must complete many of their graduation requirements by the end of Semester 1.

Programs in SWAC:

  • Welding
  • Automotive Service Technician
