Electrician

March 18, 2020 - COVID-19 information for apprentices 

The March-April and May-June intakes for apprenticeship training are cancelled.

Advanced Education has been working with eleven post-secondary institutions who deliver classroom learning to determine the best course of action that will help protect the health of apprentices, instructors and staff.

Apprentices who started classroom instruction on or after March 2, 2020 should discuss tuition options with their institutions. Priority will be given to affected apprentices seeking to re-register for classes in the 2020/21 academic year. Details to follow.

Apprentices who started technical training before March 2, 2020 will be contacted and advised by their institution about next steps for distance learning options, assessments and completion. Apprentices who complete the program and are in good academic standing will not be required to challenge the provincial theory or practical examinations.

For more information please visit the provinces trades website. You can also contact the AIT Information Line at 1-800-248-4823 if you need information or wish to discuss your apprenticeship.
