Apprenticeship Training and Certification

Provided by: Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission

Service Description

Apprenticeship technical training or updating, upgrading and specialty courses.

Apprenticeship training is a structured system of supervised training leading to certification in one of Saskatchewan’s designated trades.

Apprentices spend approximately 855 of the time working on the job, learning the knowledge and skills associated with a trade from a certified journeyperson. Remaining time is spent in theoretical and technical in-school training, which reinforces and expands on what is learned on the job.

Apprentices receive a broad range of trade experience on the work site.  Technical training usually takes place at an institute for a period of 6 – 12 weeks each year. Provides flexible, innovative and timely training options.

Once an employer decides to train an individual as an apprentice, an apprenticeship application is submitted by the apprentice and the employer to SATCC.  Apprenticeship training ranges from 2 – 5 years depending on the trade. Once apprentices complete the final level of training, they are eligible to write the journeyperson examination.

Additional information available on website and their YouTube channel.
