• How to Get Started as an Apprentice

    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 in life and what training model works best.

    Route 1  

    Come to Lambton College and earn a skilled trade credential. Skilled trade graduates may be successful in finding employers, contractors or trade unions willing to register them as apprentices.

    Route 2  

    Find an employer or contractor who can sponsor you. Register with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Sign a contract of apprenticeship and the training period begins.

    Route 3
