Advanced Training Schedule


The provincial government offers free Advanced Block Training to apprentices on a regular basis. To qualify, apprentices must have successfully completed their entry level program and obtained the required hours of work experience.  While the number of sessions and their duration will vary, most trades require apprentices to complete three advanced blocks of 8 weeks (1,200 hours) each. 

There is no cost to apprentices to do Advanced Training Blocks.  Their tuition, books, and necessary equipment are all paid for by government.  In addition, participating students are eligible to receive their Employment Insurance and any applicable Living/Travel/Child Care Allowances.
