Steps to Becoming an Apprentice

Step 1: Find a Sponsor

The first step in any apprenticeship is to get a job with an employer who is willing to sponsor you as an apprentice.

Step 2: Register as an Apprentice

Contact the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities; they will send out a training consultant who will meet with you and the employer to register you as an apprentice.

You’ll need to work with your employer for approximately a year before you attend trades school at Humber.

For more information about apprenticeships in Ontario, please refer to the Ontario College of Trades website at collegeoftrades.ca or your local Apprenticeship Branch office of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
