Apprenticeship training helps prepare and train you for a career in a skilled trade or craft. It combines supervised on-the-job training with job-related, classroom instruction to teach you the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation. Paid on-the-job training, sometimes referred to as “earn while you learn,” helps you gain entry into a high-wage occupation while avoiding large student debts.

Registered Apprenticeship employer sponsors identify the minimum eligibility and any additional qualifications applicants must possess.

To apply for Apprenticeship training, you must meet all of these qualifications:

  • Age: To be eligible, you must be no younger than 16 years of age; however job seekers must be 18 years of age to be an Apprentice in a hazardous occupation, and proof of age will be required.

  • Physical Ability: Some programs may require physical strength and endurance. Where necessary, apprentices must be able to work in a physically demanding environment for extended periods of time and in all weather conditions.

All applicants are required to meet the minimum qualifications. Some programs may have additional qualifications regarding:
