Apply to Apprenticeship and Trades

Option 1: pre-trades program

The PCC pre-trades program is the perfect fit for you if you are:

  • Interested in an open-applicant program and want to boost your competitive advantage.
  • Don’t have a lot of experience.
  • Are exploring your registered apprenticeship options.

Your first step is to attend a pre-trade information session.

Option 2: 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.
