Currently, to enter an apprenticeship you must have the educational qualifications required for the trade to which you apply. It is to your advantage to obtain as much education as possible. The further you go in school the better your chances will be to get an apprenticeship and succeed in your training. In trades where a minimum level of education is required, you must present a transcript of your school marks when you apply for apprenticeship. If you cannot obtain a school transcript, you will be required to write an approved entrance exam. In certain trades, all applicants must write an entrance exam.
Perhaps the most difficult entrance requirement to meet is finding suitable employment with an employer who is a Journeyperson or employs a Journeyperson in the trade of your choice. To apply for an apprentice position, you should go in person to firms that work in the trade you have selected. You may have to apply to several firms before you find an employer who has a position for an apprentice.
