Apprenticeship is a workplace-based training program for people who want to work in a skilled trade. About 90% of apprenticeship training occurs in the workplace under the supervision of skilled tradespeople, while the remainder involves classroom instruction, usually at a post-secondary institution or other approved training organization.
At Community Employment Services we can help you navigate your path to becoming an apprentice. We can assist you with researching various trades, provide you with information on academic requirements and schooling options, and assist with the registration process. To become an apprentice, you must find an employer who is willing to sponsor your training. We have a solid history of connecting job-seekers with employers and can help match you with an employer in the skilled trades.
