Thousands of high school students are expected to descend on Red Deer College this Thursday as RDC again plays host to CAREERexpo.

The annual one-day event will feature exhibits and displays designed to give youths information about the career options available to them — from avionics to welding.

In addition to Red Deer College, Olds College and Canadian University College, more than a dozen post-secondary institutions will have representatives on hand to educate prospective students about the programs they offer.

Other training organizations, as well as businesses, government agencies, industry associations and municipalities, will also take part.

Interactive displays will give attendees first-hand experience in such areas as robotics, forestry, welding, pipefitting and auto mechanics.

Thomas Lukaszuk, Alberta’s minister of jobs, skills, training and labour, is scheduled to attend in the morning.

CAREERexpo will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Red Deer College’s Four Centres Building, which is located at the east side of the main campus. The event is organized by CAREERS: The Next Generation, with funding from the province.
