  1. Hi, my name is Josef Pavlik. I’m very interested in your apprenticeship program and also jobs available to help me succeed in this program. As I understand, you do need a job before hand to qualify. My wife is in the suntep program in Regina and I would love to relocate with her and my children and in need of a career change. Please get back to me via email or by calling 306 314 3976 Thank You

    1. Hello. They way apprenticeship works is you need to find an employer who is willing to hire and train you, and sign you up as an apprentice. At that point, the two of you sign a contract which is registered with us. We then monitor your progress on the job. When it’s time, we will then send you to technical training. To learn more about apprenticeship, please review this page on our website, or call us toll-free at 1-877-363-0536. https://www.dropbox.com/s/94auzrzuy29m8ra/What-is-Apprenticeship_www.pdf?raw=1 .

    1. Hello and welcome. With apprenticeship, you first need to decide on a skilled trade you are interested in. Then find an employer who agrees to hire and train you as an apprentice, and signed a contract with them. A good place to begin to understand the process is to review a pamphlet called What is Apprenticeship. https://www.dropbox.com/s/94auzrzuy29m8ra/What-is-Apprenticeship_www.pdf?raw=1 It describes the trades and process to apply. Please note that we do not help people find jobs. For that, a place to start is http://www.saskjobs.ca or just approach employers you are interested in. Best wishes.

  9. Sir, I am a multi-skilled truck and transport mechanic holder of 3 years diploma in mechanical engineering having 15 years of good all-round technical and mechanical expertise.
    I am o SINP nominee whose file for immigration to canada is lying with Canada Embassy New Delhi.
    I hope to get visa for Canada very soon.
    my query:
    (1) Should I get Verification of job experience (Form 6 A) from my Indian employers as per form 6-A specimen.
    (2) Should I fill and send the Trade Qualifier Application (Form-7) to SATC for assessment.

    1. Yes have your employers complete and sign the Form 6a’s and provide a letter with a phone number and email address verifying employment for each employer. You may apply with a Form 7 to be assessed and, if you are eligible, you will be able to write the Interprovincial Journeyperson exam when you are in Saskatchewan. If you have any further questions you may email: atcassessment@gov.sk.ca.
