Application & Forms

Apply for Apprenticeship

To be eligible for apprenticeship training you must be employed in the trade. Once you are employed, you and your employer can submit the Employer Application for Registration of Apprenticeship Contract (the current fee is $150.00).  After your application has been processed and approved, a training coordinator will schedule you in the first available technical training space.  Tuition is currently $75.00 per training week for most trades and the average level of technical training is about eight weeks ($600).  The rest of the time you should be working and learning on-the-job. Designated trades in Saskatchewan take from two to four years to complete.  Therefore, on average, you would be called to attend technical training once a year for eight weeks for four years. We do not keep lists of employers looking to hire apprentices.  It’s up to you to find a job in your chosen field.  These are three websites that may be useful for you.

Some individuals apply to SIAST or other training providers before becoming employed in order to take a pre-employment type course.  These courses usually assist people in finding initial employment in the trade they are interested in but if you can find a job without pre-employment that’s great.  The Apprenticeship Commission does not pay any costs associated with pre-employment courses.
