What You Need

The term of apprenticeship for apprentice elevator constructors in Alberta is four years (four 12 month periods) that include a minimum of 1,800 hours of on-the-job training each year. Technical training is provided by the Canadian Elevator Industry Educational Program (CEIEP). Apprentices must find suitable employers who are willing to hire and train apprentices, and successfully complete technical training examinations.

Working in Alberta

Elevator constructors from other provinces and territories can work in Alberta if they hold a certificate or license recognized by the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board. For more information, see the Recognized Trade Certificates page of the Tradesecrets website.
