Designated Trades

There are over 40 designated trades and subtrades in Saskatchewan. They fall into four sectors – Agriculture, Tourism & Service; Construction; Motive Repair; and Production and Maintenance. Each trade page includes information about on-the-job training, as well as technical training, exams, and more.

Technical Training

About 15% of an apprentice’s learning takes place in technical training. Here you can find the technical training schedule, tuition fees, and apprentice code book requirements. All of the information you need before attending technical training is also provided here for you.
