If you are looking for a trade career, a pre-apprenticeship is a great way to get started.

It will give you a taste of what to expect in the industry before committing to a 3-4 year apprenticeship. And, for many employers, it is the preferred prerequisite to entering the industry.

The benefits of undertaking a pre-apprenticeship:

  • experience the industry prior to making a commitment to an apprenticeship
  • as part of your studies, you will also discover how to work and communicate effectively with others and maintain safe working conditions
  • apprentices may receive credit for the study they have completed
  • time credit may also be given in your apprenticeship in some industries
