CAREER AND TECHNOLOGY STUDIES 

CTS courses are one credit modules.  Course completion requirements are one module and one final exam.  All CTS modules are aimed at developing competencies which students must demonstrate in order to be awarded the credits.  As students progress from the introductory to the advanced modules, they will learn how to take responsibility for their own learning. 

The CTS program is designed to develop technology related skills that students can apply in their daily lives now and in the future. Many of these skills are needed for success in the workplace and in post-secondary studies.  In all CTS courses students become aware of career possibilities related to the techologies they are studying.  They will also learn about post-secondary opportunities in their area of interest.  Each course is one module in length and is worth one credit.
