AP courses are not a substitute for CTE courses – at least not in the eyes of the Department of Labor and Industries. Check out the CTE Technical Theatre Certification discussion.
Thanks for checking into PRESETT's certificate courses for high school tech students!Another idea might be Solidworks. My son is a robotics geek college student and just finished an exam to get certified (it was 3 hours long though). That won't help for lighting, but it might help for set design? Also a great endorsement to put on a resume!
