Apply to Apprenticeship and Trades

Get started with pre-trades

Our pre-trades options are the perfect fit for you if you are interested in the trades but don’t have a lot of experience. They are fast-track programs designed to expose you to the trades and help build skills to advance your career and income. Attend an information session to get started:

Registered apprenticeship

Do you currently work for an employer who is (or might be) interested in training you as a registered apprentice in an industrial trade? If so, explore the different Joint Apprenticeship Training Committees (JATCs) that manage industrial registered apprenticeship programs in partnership with PCC and hold classes at PCC locations.

See the registered apprenticeship page for more details.
