Apprenticeship is a practical method of learning, providing hands-on training in over 150 skilled trades.
Apprentices are paid while gaining work experience, their wages increase with skill levels.
Apprenticeships can lead to careers such as: construction workers, chefs, horticulturalists, information technologists, educational assistants and hairstylists.
Becoming a certified tradesperson requires a combination of on-the-job training and in-school training usually done at the local college, and usually lasts 2-5 years.
Cost can vary depending on whether the student begins their apprenticeship training with an Ontario Youth Apprenticeship (OYAP) program while they are still in secondary school.
