To become an apprentice, students must be at least 16 years old, meet the educational requirements for the trade in which they are interested, and find employment with an employer who is willing to hire and train them 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 from AIT. The Training Catalogue provides a list of technical training opportunities available for the trade.
The apprentice will attend Northwestern Polytechnic on the start date specified online. Apprentices will be notified by Northwestern Polytechnic if the class dates or location are changed. Failure to attend may lead to cancellation of the registration.
Online registration for apprenticeship is available at NWP.me/MTS. Full tuition and other fees are due and payable at the time of registration. Payments can be made via credit card.
