Welcome New Apprentices.
Remember, to be eligible for apprenticeship training, you must be employed in the trade. Once you are employed, you and your employer submit the following to the SATCC:
- Form 1 – Employer Application for Registration of Apprenticeship Contract
- Form A – Contract Between Apprentice and Employer
- Or Form B – Contract Between Apprentice and Joint Training Committee
- Form 6A – Trade-specific Verification of Trade Experience, found on the trade page through Designated Trades
- Your high school transcript and transcript for any technical training – Request for High School Transcripts
- Please refer to the fee schedule.
- Your grade twelve transcript (with no modified classes) or GED 12 is your guarantee that you meet the educational entrance requirements for apprenticeship in Saskatchewan. Learn more about Entrance Requirements for Apprenticeship Training
The SATCC works hard to ensure that people find success in the apprenticeship program by accessing Accuplacer/MyFoundationsLab. Through computer-based skill assessments and online learning, it helps people to update their literacy and math skills. People will be referred to Accuplacer MyFoundationsLab by the SATCC’s Assessment Unit. Most commonly, clients who do not have the necessary entrance requirements or need to upgrade various skills during technical training will be referred to the program.
An Accuplacer diagnostic assessment will take place for each individual. Following that, a personalized learning path, which includes a variety of interactive learning activities to teach and reinforce skills (MyFoundationsLab), will be provided for a fee of $25 effective October 1, 2016. Those who successfully complete the program will have higher basic skills, which will allow them to enter into or continue in apprenticeship.
As an apprentice, you will spent approximately 85% of your time working on the job, learning the knowledge and skills associated with a trade from a certified journeyperson. The remaining time is spent in theoretical and technical in-school training, which reinforces and expands upon what you have learned on the job.
It is your responsibility to:
- know what is involved in your trade; learn; apply skill; work diligently for your employer.
- attend training when notified
- submit your trade time experience to the SATCC training coordinator at least every six months
- advise the SATCC training coordinator if you:
- have a change of address
- work for a different employer – when you begin working for a new employer, you must complete a new contract of apprenticeship.
