    Description

    Alberta’s Apprenticeship and Industry Training website has the information you need to work in a trade in Alberta. Build your career with an apprenticeship that combines on-the-job training provided by your employer with technical training through a post-secondary education program.

You can begin your apprenticeship by taking the following steps:

    • Find an employer in your field of interest
    • Submit the Apprenticeship Application and Contract online
    • Earn while you learn!
