Apprenticeship is a practical method of learning, providing hands-on training in over 140 skilled trades in four sectors: Construction, Industrial/Manufacturing,Motive Power and Service.Apprentices are paid while gaining work experience and their wages increase with skill level.

What does an Apprenticeship prepare you for?
Apprenticeships can lead to careers such as: carpenter, general machinist, motorcycle technician, early childhood educator, hairstylist and chef. How much does it cost? Cost can range from $400 – $800 per year. Students can begin their apprenticeship training through the
Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) while they are still in secondary school. The Apprentice Incentive Grant (AIG) is available to registered apprentices.
Consider an Apprenticeship if:
• You enjoy hands on learning and have good mechanical and spatial abilities.
• You enjoy fixing things, assembling and disassembling structures.
• You are able to solve problems, determine why something does not work and how it can be done better.
• You are interested in earning while you learn.
• You enjoy working with people to provide a service.
How long can an Apprenticeship take?
Becoming a certified tradesperson requires a combination of on-the-job training and in-school training conducted at a college or training centre, and usually lasts 3-5 years depending on the trade.
