The Apprenticeship Application / Agreement Process

An individual must find employment with or be working for an employer who will provide quality, on-the-job training. The employee and employer formalize the relationship through an Apprenticeship, administered by the Apprenticeship Branch of Manitoba Jobs and the Economy. During each level or year of apprenticeship training, which varies from two to five years depending on the trade, about 80 per cent of an apprentice's time is spent learning on the job while earning a wage. The remaining 20 per cent, usually taken in a block of time away from work, is technical, classroom-based training.
