For the majority of trades, it is required that applicants have a high school diploma or equivalent academic standing. Because apprenticeship trades involve technical components, it is important to have high school credits in English, math and science. Those with mature student status, over 19 years of age, regardless of completed grade level, may be required to participate in an assessment process. Graduates from a college pre-employment program, Senior Years Apprenticeship Option or an accredited high school vocational program may qualify for time and/or level credits in an apprenticeship program.

If you don’t meet these admission requirements please visit our adult learning page for more information on assessment of special circumstances.
