Ag. equipment tech program soon available


High school students in Mountain View School Division (MVSD) may soon have the opportunity to take an Agricultural Equipment Technician (AET) program.
Assistant superintendent Dan Ward explained MVSD administration and staff are working on another option for its High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP), with Sun West School Division in Kenaston, Sask.
“They have a distance learning program and personalized electronically blended learning program that we wanted to learn more about. They are a large rural division and they have some similarities to Mountain View,” Ward said.
“And we expressed particular interest in their Agricultural Equipment Technician program. One of the reasons for that is, we have in any given year, a small number of students who are doing placements in some of our ag dealerships in our high school apprenticeship program.”
