Apprenticeship is your ticket to a challenging and rewarding career in the skilled trades!
Apprenticeship is quality, affordable, post-secondary training that leads to certification as a journeyperson in a skilled trade. However, unlike university or college, where YOU PAY for your entire education, as an apprentice YOU GET PAID to learn. Most trade programs take 2-4 years to complete and they combine approximately 80% paid-on-the job training with 20% technical/in-school learning.
Manitoba’s skilled, certified tradespeople play an important role in our society. In the next decade, many of them will be nearing retirement, leaving Manitoba with shortages in the skilled trades. Manitoba has more than 50 skilled trades available for you to start your apprenticeship.
Apprenticeship can lead you to a well-paid, skilled employment. Through a combination of hands-on training and in-school learning, you can earn a certificate of qualification in a trade. This means your expertise and industry-proven skills are formally and financially recognized. With most trades available for Interprovincial Red Seal certification, your credentials are recognized across Canada.
