Materials Technician apprenticeship training is a branch of the Parts Technician apprenticeship program.
- First and third period training are common with Parts Technician; therefore these apprentices would register into the Parts Technician course.
- Second period Materials Technician apprentices would register into the Materials Technician course (offered at NAIT at the present time).
Materials Technicians are involved in the movement of materials in a wide variety of industries including agricultural, forestry, health, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, transportation, and wholesale/retail industries. The duties and responsibilities of a Materials Technician can vary considerably. In general, a Materials Technician prepares, generates and picks orders, receives shipments, controls inventory, manages stocking and storage, and coordinates the transportation of materials.
To enter an apprenticeship, you must have the educational qualifications required for the trade to which you apply. Entrance requirements are monitored by Alberta and Industry Training.
