You’ve probably heard the term “apprentice” before, and no–I’m not referring to Donald Trump’s show. In reality, an apprentice is someone who learns on the job. In British Columbia, the formal apprenticeship process is organized and run by the ITA, also know as the “Industry Training Authority”. The traditional apprenticeship process includes stages of learning on the job, combined with studying in school that eventually leads to the apprentice earning their “ticket”. You can find out more about becoming an apprentice and the types of trades that have an apprenticeship route by visiting the ITA’s website: www.itabc.ca.
