About us

The Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) oversees and administers the apprenticeship and trade certification system in Saskatchewan.

In this role, the SATCC fulfills four primary functions.

The SATCC:
• trains apprentices;
• certifies tradespeople and apprentices;
• regulates the apprenticeship system of training; and
• promotes apprenticeship as a way for employers to meet their labour market requirements.

The SATCC is an industry-led, arms-length government organization dedicated to training apprentices and certifying tradespeople.

We are an educational institution—much like a college, university or technical training institution. We are also a certification body responsible for issuing journeyperson certificates.

The key difference between our education system and other education institutions is we don’t train apprentices ourselves on site. Instead, we rely on thousands of individual employers to deliver the bulk of the training to their own apprentice employees in their workplaces under the guidance of skilled journeyperson mentors. We also contract other institutions—Saskatchewan Polytechnic and regional colleges, for instance—to provide theory-based technical training to complement the work-based learning.

Our Vision
Creating the most skilled and representative workforce, industry trained and certified.
Our Mandate
To develop, promote and administer a relevant, accessible and responsive apprenticeship training and certification system to meet the needs of employers, workers and the public.
Our Values
Industry-focus, Collaboration, Responsiveness, Equity, Diversity, Transparency, Accountability, Innovation, Excellence, Courage, Safety.
