In apprenticeship, you learn skills while you earn money. About 80 per cent of training takes place on the job. At work, you learn the skills of the trade with the help of a qualified tradesperson.
The rest of the training takes place at a college or other technical institute. In-class training ranges from 4 to 12 weeks per year. When you finish your apprenticeship, you become a certified journeyperson.
It can take two to four years to finish your on-the-job and classroom training.
