REGINA – High School students in Regina are going to have a chance to receive military dual credit through the Canadian Army Reserve Co-Op program.
Starting on February 15 students in both Public and Catholic School divisions can apply to take the program in the second semester of each year.
In the program, students who complete the requirements of basic military training – as well as Canadian history – will receive two high school credits and will also be recognized as a member of the Canadian reserves.
“Our government has deep respect for our Canadian Armed Forces and their commitment and dedication to serving our country and our youth,” Education Minister Don Morgan said.
“The Primary Reserve Co-op Program will help students learn valuable life and leadership skills and I encourage other school divisions to explore similar dual credit opportunities.”
The military training for the students will be held at the Regina Armoury.
