RE-START SATCC SERVICES

Re-Start SATCC Services Plan

In alignment with the Government of Saskatchewan’s Re-Open Saskatchewan plan, the SATCC is delivering apprenticeship and trade certification services.

SATCC offices

 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.

Examinations

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

 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

 Technical training is often being delivered using a hybrid training model, a combination of online and in-person learning. Apprentices attending hybrid training 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/.

One of the questions our SYA team frequently gets asked is “What’s the best trade to get into?” It all depends. It depends on the trade you’re interested in: is the trade currently in high demand? It depends on the aspects of the trade: does it have a residential, commercial, or industrial sector to it? It depends on your work ethic and your goals: how hard do you want to work? Do you want to start a business, work for yourself or work for someone else?

Our SYA Manager Paul gives this advice: “Choose a trade you have a passion for and can see yourself doing for many years. Hone your skills through the apprenticeship training system, then a successful career will follow.”

Our Field Consultant Katilyn presented virtually to folks from the Regina Open Door Society Inc. this morning. Great engagement from all those who attended!

Some popular topics of discussion included the financial supports and benefits available to apprentices. While attending technical training, apprentices may be eligible to receive Employment Insurance as well as the Apprenticeship Training Allowance. Apprentices can also apply for grants such as the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant, the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant for Women, and the Apprenticeship Completion Grant.
