Apprenticeship training provides students with the tools they need to become skilled workers while building employment contacts and gaining real-life experience. A student interested in becoming an apprentice can choose a variety of entry points depending on where they are at in life and what training model works best.
Come to Lambton College and earn a diploma or certificate in the skilled trades. Learn in a hands-on environment and gain workplace experience through projects and co-ops. College graduates with diplomas in a skilled trade may be successful in finding employers, contractors or trade unions willing to register them as apprentices.
Find an employer or contractor who can sponsor you. Register with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) office. Sign a contract of apprenticeship and the training period begins.
Union or trade association training - some unions or trade associations hold contracts of apprenticeship with apprentices. Find a union or trade association in your area today!
While still in high school, register as an apprentice through the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP). See your student success team to find out how.
