To become an apprentice you must be at least 16 years old, meet the educational requirements for the trade in which you are interested, and find employment with an employer who is willing to hire and train you as an apprentice.
Once hired, the employee discusses apprenticeship training with the employer, obtains appropriate approvals, and enters into a contract. This contract is then registered with Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT). AIT will issue an identification card, a course outline booklet, and an apprenticeship record book.
Apprentices will receive notification by mail from AIT, and must then go online (tradesecrets.alberta.ca) for a list of all the training opportunities available for the trade for the next academic year.
The apprentice must contact GPRC to register for an intake. Full tuition and other fees are due and payable at the time of registration.
The apprentice will attend GPRC on the start date specified online. Apprentices will be notified by GPRC if the class dates or location are changed. Failure to attend may lead to cancellation of the registration
