How Does Apprenticeship Work?
As an apprentice, you learn a skilled trade on the job while working with and learning from a licensed tradesman or tradeswoman, and get paid while you do it.
You also learn in a classroom from instructors who know the trade. This may take place on a college campus or in a union training centre.
For most trades, you work for a year and then switch to studying in class for eight to 12 weeks, either full or part-time. It takes between two to five years to complete an apprenticeship.
When you finish your training as an apprentice, you will get a Certificate of Apprenticeship. To obtain the Certificate of Apprenticeship, you and your sponsor have a few tasks to complete. For certain trades, you will also need to complete an exam to get a certificate of Qualification.
