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

If you’re starting from the beginning and learning a new trade, consider our pre-employment and pre-apprenticeship programs to help you get going. 

You’ll learn trade knowledge and skills through hands-on training and formal instruction. Most of these programs lead into an apprenticed trade.
