Updated for May 27, 2021.

On March 23, due to increased COVID-19 transmission risk in Regina and area, the Government of Saskatchewan issued updated public health orders for the city and surrounding communities. The local public health order will remain in effect until Step One of the Government of Saskatchewan’s Re-Opening Roadmap is implemented on Sunday, May 30.

The Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) is committed to safeguarding the health and safety of our province’s apprentices and employers, as well as the safety of our staff, as we face COVID-19.

What This Means for Apprentices and Employers:

Technical Training

Face-to-face apprenticeship technical training currently taking place at Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Regina and Moose Jaw campuses resumed on Monday, May 10.

Examinations

Step One of the Government of Saskatchewan’s Re-Opening Roadmap will be implemented on Sunday, May 30. Certification exams will begin in Regina on Monday, May 31, 2021.

SATCC Offices

All SATCC offices are open to the public.

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.
