Safety in Schools courses offer many benefits

The Safety in Schools program is designed to meet the needs of students in any learning stream. While our primary goal is to provide vital safety training to students before they enter the workforce, there are a number of additional ways that Safety in Schools courses benefit students. How these courses benefit different students depends on individual career paths and learning streams.

All of the courses that we offer are the same ones purchased by employers for their own internal training purposes. Taking these courses now, before entering the workforce, puts Safety in Schools students at an advantage when applying to many large Alberta employers.

Some of our courses overlap the following categories.

  • AB Curriculum Aligned Courses: These courses align with certain outcomes laid out by AB Education (HSC3000, HCS3010, AGR3000, General CTS Alignment).
  • Enhancement Courses: These courses do not align with specific AB curriculum outcomes, but provide safety training that is more geared toward individual workplace settings. Some of these courses also provide useful safety training that students can apply in their personal lives, such as Bear Safety Awareness or Distractions and Proactive Driver Training.
  • Occupational Health & Safety Courses: Safety in Schools gives students a head start toward a career in Occupational Health and Safety by offering courses that are recognized by OH&S regulatory bodies. Students can earn points toward OH&S Certificates as well as The University of Calgary’s Environment, Health and Safety Certificate.
