One of the most important things for any post-secondary student is finding work when school's out. With everything going on now, that's even more of a concern. Luckily, there are Canadian Coast Guard Jobs available next summer for people enrolled in university.\nApplications are now being accepted for student positions in the Inshore Rescue Boat program for summer 2021. The stations are located across the country, so young Canadians from coast to coast have the opportunity to apply.\nOn top of the experience, you can gain from such a unique summer job, the hourly pay can also be as high as $24 an hour.\nEditor's Choice: CRSB Has Just Launched In Canada & You Can Get $500 Per Week If You Get COVID-19\n\nWhat is the job?\nWorking in the Inshore Boat Rescue program gives students the opportunity to take part in some of the duties of the Canadian Coast Guard.\nSuccessful applicants start their position with 16 days of paid training, in which they'll learn things like boat handling, coastal navigation, and search and rescue techniques.\nOnce the training is complete, new recruits will take part in responding to mariners who are in danger or distress. That includes helping people whose boats are on fire, capsized, or taking on water.\nParticipants will also respond to medical emergencies and instances where people have gone overboard, as well as providing public education on boating safety topics.\n\nHow much does it pay?\nPost-secondary student rates of pay are determined by the department, but according to the Government of Canada website, the hourly rate for university undergraduates can range from $16.49 to $24.77 an hour.\nThe pay range for college or CEGEP pre-university students is slightly lower, going from $15.40 to $20.62 hourly.\nThe number of hours ensures a pretty solid summer salary either way. Participants are scheduled through a 46.6-hour averaging work system. However, the nature of the job means you may work extra.\nEach recruit is on a 14-day schedule, meaning they are on duty for two weeks straight. After this period, they get two weeks off.\n\nWho can apply?\nOnly post-secondary students who are returning to their studies in the fall can apply, and they have until December 21 to get their applications in.\nPeople who are interested in the position must get government security clearance and pass a Health Canada medical clearance. Both of these are completed after the interview process.\nThere are, however, some strict requirements for applicants to the program. First, they must have a driver's license with no restrictions.\nThey also need to have a standard first-aid certificate and CPR level C, a valid boating license, and a Radio Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime). Luckily, these can all be obtained through online courses.
