CHINOOK’S EDGE
Dual Credit Programming
What is Dual Credit?
Dual credit allows high school students to earn credits in high
school and college at the same time.
Olds College and Chinook's Edge have offered dual credit by using
CTS and college credit in welding, equine, carpentry, machining,
fashion and landscape construction on-site, online, and in blended
environments.
Who is eligible?
Grade 11 and 12 students are eligible for dual credit.
Students need to be prepared for the expectations and rigors of a
post-secondary course.
Students interested in participating must be approved by their high
school. Students then complete an application package, including a
responsibility agreement and a written statement of intent.
What courses will be available?
In 2011-2012, we have tentative plans to offer courses in welding,
machining, landscape construction, equine, and fashion marketing.
Final course information and application packages will be available
from your high school before the end of May for the first semester
and before the end of November for the second semester.

CHINOOK’S EDGE
CLC launches hairstylist apprenticeship
15 Feb
The newest dual credit program has brought together new funding
partners, business professionals and a full roster of eager students
from throughout Chinook’s Edge, as the Community Learning
Campus launches a Hairstylist Trade pre-employment
apprenticeship program.
“There has been a great deal of interest in this program and we
were pleased to see it fill so quickly,” said Jean Madill, Executive
Director of Campus Alberta Central, which is funding the pilot
program. “Our mandate is to provide opportunities for adult learners
throughout the Central Alberta region. We wanted to support the
efforts to bring in this new opportunity for students to learn a trade,
to determine if it is a viable program to offer to adult learners.
Judging from the response so far, I would say the investment is a
success.”
Above-average growth is predicted in the hairstyling trade in the
coming years, making job prospects attractive for graduates. Once
they have completed the program, which utilizes a blend of online
and hands-on training over two semesters, graduates will receive
CTS credits through their high school and pre-employment trade
credits through Olds College.

CREDENTIALED PATHWAYS
A pathway is a selection of courses to give students the opportunity to explore
and acquire the attitudes, skills and knowledge for future careers that are relevant
to their interests. Pathways can work toward goals that may include university,
college, apprentice training, or moving directly into the workforce.
Credentialed pathways are a series of specific courses selected to help the
student achieve a credential or credit awarded by a recognized community or
industry organization or post-secondary institution.
This document has been provided to assist teachers in the delivery and
completion of CTS credentialed pathways in Alberta schools. All
credential/journeyperson opportunities are external to Alberta Education, and it is
the responsibility of the student/teacher/school to ensure that the requirements of
the credentialing organization have been addressed.

COURSE COMPLETION SUMMARY
Note:
1. Students may complete a course than once in a school year. There, the
number of course completions may be inflated.
2. “Course Completion” does not mean a student has passed a course. IT a
student has a final mark on a record it is considered a completion.

DUAL CREDIT DEFINITION (CON’T)
• Preferred placement: Post-secondary
institutions exempt students from courses
(often at the first-year level) in recognition of
coursework completed in high school (e.g.,
first-period apprenticeship, child development
assistant).
• Workplace certification: Provincial high
school curricula, particularly Career and
Technology Studies, provide students with
opportunities to achieve workplace
certification through pathways (e.g., medical
first responder, Adobe Certified Expert).
