AET/PT Information sheet for School Administrators and Career Counsellors
AET20, AET30, and PT30 are Semester One courses. Students will complete 50 hours of online theory under the guidance of the Sun West DLC teacher by mid-November.
Once the student has completed the online theory, they will begin their work placement at an ag dealership close to the student’s community. Sun West DLC’s Ag Coordinator will confirm the placement at dealerships across the province. Each division will provide a teacher supervisor at the local school level who will supervise students throughout the duration of the placement. It is recommended that two on-site visits are conducted within the first 25 hours of work placement, and one on-site visit for each additional 25 hours.
*Some divisions are using an AET application process. Check with your division’s CWEX coordinator.
Students are responsible for any necessary workplace attire or materials such as steel-toed work boots, coveralls, etc. They are also responsible for the cost of their transportation to and from the Ag dealership to complete the work experience component.
