Find a suitable employer who is willing to hire a trainee. There is no minimum education requirement, but it is recommended that applicants have Mathematics 10, Science 10, and English 10. Most employers prefer to hire high school graduates or people who already have related training or experience (e.g., gasfitters). Prospective gas utility operators may be first hired as labourers and, if their work is satisfactory, offered trainee positions when they become available.
