The Apex Centre has been on location this week teaching first aid and and CPR at Sir John A McDonald and Dundas Valley secondary schools in conjunction with a program advanced by the province of Ontario.
Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM) are bundles of 8-10 courses that allow Grade 11 and 12 students to focus their learning on a specific economic sector while getting their high school diploma. SHSMs provide students with an opportunity to focus their learning and gain valuable experience for all post-secondary opportunities.
The SHSM program has a number of required components, designed to give students a “leg-up” to pursue post-secondary opportunities in a variety of employment sectors. Students will also earn industry recognized certifications, which builds confidence in their skills and links their studies with the world beyond high school and future careers.
