How To Become An Apprentice

  • Find an employer who is willing to hire and train you in your preferred trade.
    • Sheridan Community Employment Services may be able to help you.
  • Contact the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities:

Training Division

  • Arrange an appointment with an Apprenticeship Training Consultant and your Employer. The Training Consultant will ensure that your Employer has the appropriate background to train you, assist with the necessary paperwork and monitor your progress throughout your training. Once registered, your work hours will count toward your Certificate of Qualification (C of Q) in your trade. Each trade requires the completion of a certain number of hours before you are eligible to take the in-school training. The Training Consultant is responsible for registering you for the in-school training.


  • Enter a Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program – When completed you will have the skills and experience to make you more marketable to potential employers.
