The SATCC works hard to ensure that people find success in the apprenticeship program by accessing IXL Learning. Through computer-based online learning, it helps people to update their literacy and math skills. People will be referred to IXL Learning 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.
IXL Learning’s skills are aligned to the Saskatchewan Curriculum Outcomes providing comprehensive coverage of Math and English Language Arts concepts and applications. Clients taking the Entrance Requirements Training will have six (6) months to complete the training, and must meet the required score in each learning outcome. Once complete, and if all other admission requirements have been met, the client will be notified that they qualify to move forward with apprenticeship. Access to this program will be provided for a fee of $25 effective October 1, 2016.

As an apprentice, you will spend 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.
- self-register for technical training in MyATC when you’ve met the required number of hours for your trade
- submit your trade time experience through MyATC every few months
- advise the SATCC 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 Apprenticeship Application on MyATC.
