In alignment with the Government of Saskatchewan’s Re-Open Saskatchewan plan, the SATCC is delivering apprenticeship and trade certification services.
Front counter services now include plexiglass shields to create a barrier between SATCC staff members and clients; hand sanitizer is readily available for staff and client use, and signage is posted to help ensure appropriate physical distancing. Clients are encouraged to use debit or credit cards for payment. Staff based in regional offices are available for face-to-face services by appointment only – which is the same way these offices operated prior to COVID-19.
Journeyperson certification examination schedules are not posted. Apprentices and tradespeople seeking to register for an exam sitting are encouraged to indicate their desired exam month in their application. Once submitted, an SATCC staff member will follow up with the applicant to discuss specific dates. Exam applications are available here: https://saskapprenticeship.ca/applications-forms/#apply-for-exams. Exams are taking place at third-party locations to ensure there is enough room to physically distance.
Psychoeducational assessments are performed by the SATCC’s registered psychologist to determine whether an apprentice has a disability requiring accommodations during apprenticeship technical training or examinations. Assessments are also taking place at third-party locations to ensure there is enough room to physically distance.
Technical training is being delivered using a hybrid training model, a combination of online and in-person learning. Apprentices will complete the theoretical portions of their training online and the hands-on, practical components on campus in a shop setting. The current version of the technical training schedule is available here: https://saskapprenticeship.ca/technical-training-information/.
