  • Apprenticeship provides hands-on experience; however, apprenticeship programs require “in school” training as well
  • Mohawk provides in-class training for many of the trades for those who are already registered and working in an apprenticeship position

An Ontario Apprenticeship will include the following

  • On-The-Job Training: The apprentice learns the appropriate skills of the trade while working with and under the supervision of a qualified journeyperson
  • In-School Training: The apprentice learns the theory which supports all phases of the trade and relates this theory to practical projects that simulate typical work assignments

This program covers all in-class training for this apprenticeship.

Apprenticeship training is an agreement between a person wishing to learn a skill and an employer who can provide the environment for skills training. It is administered in Ontario by the Apprenticeship Client Services Branch of the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

In today's industry, there is a great demand for qualified individuals in a wide variety of occupations. In order to survive in the global market, industry must continue to meet the challenges offered by today's technology. Therefore, highly-skilled individuals or journeypersons with a combination of on-the-job training and in-school education obtained through apprenticeship programs are required to meet these challenges.

Learning Outcomes

Program Learning Outcomes, often referred to as ‘Program Standards', set out the essential learning that a student must achieve before being deemed ready to graduate.

In many cases these program learning outcomes were developed by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) in consultation with employers and educators who are experts in the program field. To ensure the outcomes remain current and in line with industry needs, we invite our employers, graduates working in the field and current students to re-examine and update them during regular, ongoing program review focus groups.
