Apprenticeship Training

Programs that provide a combination of paid, structured on-the-job training and related classroom instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a designated trade, craft or occupation under the supervision of a skilled craft worker. Upon completion of the in-class and the on-the-job training, the apprentice is required to write an examination and, if successful, is given a Certificate of Apprenticeship, a Certificate of Qualification and the designation of certified journeyperson. Apprenticeship programs vary in length from 2-5 years depending on the trade, and are registered with and administered by the apprenticeship branch of the respective province or territory. Registered apprenticeship training in a trade can be either compulsory or voluntary, depending on the regulations of the province or territory.
