Apprenticeship - Education

An apprenticeship is offered to people whose employer agrees to provide them with on-the-job training while they continue to work and get paid. Apprenticeships typically offer a combination of on-the-job experience as well as in-class technical training. Most often, they are offered in construction, industrial trades, motive power and the services sector. There are many to choose from. Being able to earn while you learn offers opportunities for you to complete your training while also managing your financial situation. Apprenticeship incentive grants and Canada apprentice loans are available to help you pay for your apprenticeship, and tax credits and benefits are available to trade persons and apprentices upon completion of their programs. Are you considering an apprenticeship? Would you like more information regarding the types of programs available, as well as the requirements to apply? Are you wondering if an apprenticeship is right for you, or for your child, a family member or friend? We have the answers you are looking for.
