Apprenticeship | St. Clair College

Apprenticeship is a training agreement between a person who wants to learn a skill and an employer who needs a skilled worker. To become a certified tradesperson it requires a combination of on-the-job and in-school training. On the job, apprentices learn skills and competencies by completing various operations associated with the trade under the supervision of a qualified tradesperson. This process takes from 2 to 5 years depending on the occupation, but the apprentice is earning wages while learning a trade.
