Apprenticeship Program

 

Overview

What is an Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship training combines paid on-the-job training with classroom instruction in which Apprentices learn the practical and theoretical aspects of the trade occupation.  Successful completion of both components along with other program requirements and examinations is required to earn certification and become a red seal certified journeyperson.

Apprenticeship programs are operated on a voluntary basis by employers, employer associations, or management and labor groups (unions).

Who is your Sponsor: The JLATA is designated and registered with the ITA as your Sponsor.   the JLATA is responsible for the maintenance of Trainee and Apprentice records, reporting to the ITA  and ensuring Apprentices meet all the program and Industry requirements to successfully complete the PLT Interprovincial Red Seal Program.

Apprentice works with their Sponsor to complete work-based training, technical training levels 1-3, Inter Provincial Red Seal Examinations and other program requirements. An Apprentice is registered with the ITA and works with their Sponsor throughout their Apprenticeship and follows Apprentice responsibilities.
