The Provincial Apprenticeship and Certification Board through legislative authority is responsible for the registration of apprentices and trade qualifiers into the designated occupations.

After successful completion of this program, and the required work experience, the apprentices qualify to return to complete advanced level training in preparation for writing the Journeyperson=s Examination.
