How We Work

Apprentices attend classes to gain knowledge and skills they then apply to work in their field through a contract with an employer and under the supervision of a certified journeyperson.

Most of the apprenticeship training is done on the job with only a small amount of formal instruction in the classroom — about three to 12 weeks, depending on the trade.

Apprenticeship training is mandatory to get trade credentials and become a certified journeyperson. Those who have been certified can work their trade in Alberta or elsewhere in Canada after passing a Red Seal exam.
