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 one of our pre-employment or 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.

Pre-employment programs range from six to 18 weeks in length and pre-apprenticeship programs range from 21 to 24 weeks in length.

Find a list of the programs we offer on our pre-employment or pre-apprenticeship pages!
