Full-Day Programs Offered Through Red River Technical Vocational Area (RRTVA)

The RRTVA is a consortium of regional high schools which have joined together to offer a wider variety of technology education programs than any one of them could offer on their own. It has become part of a strong tradition of working together to provide high-quality technical education options to high school students of southern Manitoba.

Students typically take one semester of regular academic courses at RVS and one semester of technical training at the RRTVA school that offers the program. Programs may take from one to three full semesters to complete.

Almost all trades-related programs are accredited with Manitoba Apprenticeship. If a student achieves an accumulated average of 70% or higher in an accredited program, they may be granted the first level of technical training in the trade for which that program is accredited. They will still need to complete the Practical Training Time Credit for the first level which can be started through the High School Apprenticeship Program for high school credit as well.

Transportation to RRTVA partner schools is provided and the classes occur within the regular school day. This allows students to remain, involved with extra-curricular activities at RVS.
