How does an apprenticeship work?

What is an apprenticeship anyway?

Apprenticeships include on-the-job training and classroom learning. Once you complete your apprenticeship you receive a “ticket”, which are credentials that show that you are qualified to work in a certain type of skilled trade. You can be an apprentice during high school or after you graduate.

If you’re interested in being an apprentice and you live in BC (or even if you live elsewhere in Canada), there’s some great info on apprenticeship and careers in the trades section on the ITA* website. Click here, or on the video image above to view the ITA’s ‘Apprenticeship Basics’ video on Youtube.

* The Industry Training Authority (ITA) leads and coordinates British Columbia’s skilled trades system. ITA works with employers, employees, industry, labour, training providers and government to issue credentials, manage apprenticeships, set program standards, and increase opportunities in the trades.
