Apprenticeship Classroom Training
This program provides classroom training, which represents approximately 10 to 15 per cent of the training apprentices need to complete their apprenticeship. The classroom component of an apprenticeship program usually consists of three levels of formal instruction based on the Ontario College of Trades’ approved curriculum. Training delivery agents are required to be approved by the province to deliver each level of formal instruction in a trade.
