They will attend field trips to various ICT institutions and facilities providing them with reach-ahead and experiential learning opportunities. They will earn certifications including CPR, First Aid and WHMIS at no cost. And most importantly, students will have fun all while learning!
All SHSM programs are recognized by Ontario’s Ministry of Education. Students that complete the program will earn a red seal on their diploma. To complete the program, students must take a bundle of related courses (4 core courses), complete a 2-credit COOP placement and participate in certification and enrichment sessions planned for them throughout the school year.
