Apprenticeship and Trade Programs
SAIT is renowned for providing first-class training in a variety of trades. Whether you’re a registered apprentice, or looking to become one, we have a program for you.
Pre-employment and pre-apprenticeship programs
You’ll learn trade knowledge and skills through hands-on training and formal instruction. Most of these programs lead into an apprenticed trade.
Pre-employment programs range from six to 18 weeks in length and pre-apprenticeship programs range from 21 to 24 weeks in length.

If you’re already registered with Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT), you don’t need to apply; simply contact Student Services to register in the trade and period you are eligible for.
