How to register for apprenticeship with SkilledTradesBC

To register for an apprenticeship with SkilledTradesBC, an individual must go through a series of steps to ensure they meet all the requirements and are properly documented in the system.

Here's a detailed guide:

  1. Choose a Trade: Determine which skilled trade you wish to pursue. SkilledTradesBC has a list of designated trades each with specific training requirements.

  2. Find an Employer or Sponsor: Secure a position with an employer or find a sponsor who is willing to hire and train you as an apprentice. The sponsor doesn’t necessarily have to be your employer; it could also be a union, industry association, or another organization registered with SkilledTradesBC.

  3. Sign an Apprenticeship Agreement: With your sponsor's help, you need to sign a formal Apprenticeship Agreement. This document is your commitment to learning the trade through on-the-job training and technical training provided by a training provider.

  4. Register with SkilledTradesBC: Once the Apprenticeship Agreement is signed, your sponsor will register you with SkilledTradesBC either online through the SkilledTradesBC portal or by paper application. You will receive a unique apprentice ID once the registration is processed.

  5. Work-Based Training: Start your work-based training under the guidance of a certified journeyperson or equivalent. Throughout your apprenticeship, you will need to track your work hours and competencies.

  6. Technical Training: Enroll in the technical (in-school) training aspect of your apprenticeship, which is often delivered at a post-secondary institution. This component may be scheduled in blocks of time or day release throughout the year.
