Manage Your Apprenticeship

Supports and Services

There are many supports and services available to apprentices and trades qualifiers.  Get to know them so that you are able to be successful at completing your apprenticeship.


Essential Skills

Developing the practical skills, knowledge and experience to succeed in a career in the trades is important, but you must also have basic skills for effective learning during your apprenticeship technical training. These “essential” skills – in key areas, such as reading, math, inter-personal communication and computers – help ensure your success as a student, an apprentice and ultimately as a journeyperson. If you have been out-of school for some time or you feel your learning skills are a bit rusty, essential skills may be for you.


Special Accommodations

We do respond to requests for special accommodations for examinations. If you have a disability or a language barrier, do not hesitate to let us know. For example, if English is not your first language, you may obtain permission to use a translator, a reader or language dictionary. You may also request more time to write the examination. Documentation from a qualified professional is required (i.e. medical doctor, educational psychologist, International Centre representative etc.). Contact us for an application at least one month prior to examination.
