Participation requirements

All trades programs have a mandatory attendance requirement. If you miss three days in an apprenticeship class, you’ll be required to withdraw from the course. In exceptional cases, the Chair may recommend an exemption to this policy. The final decision on withdrawal from a program will rest with the Dean. You are ultimately responsible for your own learning and for meeting the requirements of the program. You are encouraged to communicate issues concerning your program with your instructor or Program Chair.

Completion requirements

All apprenticeship programs require an overall grade of 70% to pass the technical training portion.

Applying for Apprentice Financial Supports

Apprentices should apply for financial support before the start of the program and up to 4 weeks in advance. Late applications may result in Service Canada denying funding.
