The credits received are: Designing Your Future (GWL3O), The Environment and Resource Management (CGR4E), The Environment and Resource Management Co-op (CGR4E), and The Enterprising Person (BDP3O). Since 1997, this program has been preparing students for direct entry into the work force with employers in selected sectors such as: logging, resource and wildlife management, and ecotourism. Students study ecology, resource and forestry management, recreation services, community leadership, and other topics related to employment patterns in the area. The Northern Outdoor Studies Program has worked closely with industry to identify recognized training and certifications that students should achieve while completing their secondary school diploma. Before finishing the program, each student assembles their own portfolio highlighting the certifications, skills, and knowledge they have gained throughout the course. Employers in the community are actively involved in curriculum development, work placement initiatives, and the development of skills profiles for entry level workers.
