Wikis > Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship is a form of post-secondary training that teaches the skills and competencies necessary to perform tasks to an industry standard. It combines paid on-the-job learning under the supervision of a journeyperson with short periods of formal classroom instruction, ending with a certification exam. Apprenticeship leads to certification or licensing in the trades. In Canada, apprenticeship is regulated by the provinces and territories.
