What is Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship is quality, affordable, post-secondary training that leads to certification as a journeyperson in a skilled occupation. As an apprentice, you will learn through a combination of classes and on-the-job training and experience where skilled
trades professionals (Journeypersons) pass knowledge and skills on to apprentices.
There are many apprenticeable occupations in New Brunswick. Most apprenticeship programs take two to five years to complete, and they combine approximately 80 per cent
paid on-the-job training with 20 per cent technical/in-school learning. Once you're done, you receive either a Diploma of Apprenticeship, a Certificate of Qualification and if applicable, a Red Seal designation. These qualifications can help you get better pay and more jobs.
