Training has been designed so that an apprentice does not have to leave the workplace. Rather, technical training is a combination of home study distance learning, a journeyperson / mentor signing off on practical competencies and invigilating quizzes, and worksite visit by an instructor.
Currently employed tradespeople can also register as apprentices, or challenge the journeyperson exam if they meet the requirements.

Journeyperson certification will provide other career opportunities in the trade or related trades.
