What is Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship combines on-the-job training from a licensed journeyperson with classroom-based technical training. Generally, 80-90% of the training is spent in the workplace. Depending on the trade, an apprenticeship can take approximately two to five years to complete.

 What is a Journeyperson?

A journeyperson has mastered the skills of an occupation and has achieved a Certificate of Qualification. An employer will assign a journeyperson to supervise and train an apprentice. Once the apprentice has completed all components outlined in the training standards and passed the classroom-based technical training they can challenge the exam. A minimum of 70% is required to achieve journeyperson status. 

Why is it important to become certified? 

  1. certification proves to employers you have all necessary skills and qualifications;
  2. proves to customers that you are a qualified tradesperson;
  3. self-employment may be an option;
  4. certified journeypersons are more likely to be promoted;
  5. journeypersons usually make more money than tradespeople without certification.

What is an apprenticeship agreement?

An apprenticeship agreement is a contract between an apprentice, an employer, and the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities - Apprenticeship Branch. The agreement sets out the responsibilities of all parties involved, as governed by the apprenticeship laws of the province.

Apprenticeship In-school Training

OYAP students will not be scheduled for the in-school training until they have completed their O.S.S.D. and a copy of their transcript has been mailed or faxed to the local apprenticeship office. Technical training usually takes place at a community college. The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities pays for 80% of the apprentice’s tuition. Apprentices are responsible for classroom fees - approximately $200 - $600 per session. The MTCU will notify the apprentice by mail of the date and location of his or her technical in-school training.
