Apprenticeship is a combination of post secondary training, and on-the-job experiential learning. Typically an individual enters apprenticeship upon completion of entry-level training program, and becomes employed under the supervision of a certified journeyperson. Once the individual obtains employment under the direction of a certified journeyperson, they must contact the Department of Education to become registered as an apprentice.
A Provincial Plan of Apprenticeship Training details the full scope of learning for a particular occupation, including both technical training competencies and industry experiences necessary to write an interprovincial (IP) examination (and complete the requirements for Red Seal Certification), or to write a provincial examination.
