Earn some of the highest salaries offered in our province and take pride in building, renovating, and maintaining homes, businesses, and critical infrastructure in New Brunswick. 

 

The easiest ways to become a professional tradesperson is by becoming an apprentice.  

 

As an apprentice, you learn a skilled trade on the job. You work with and learn from experienced workers and get paid as you learn from experienced tradespeople on actual job sites. You also learn in a classroom from instructors who know the trade and are motivated to help you get into the workplace. 

 

By starting your career as an apprentice, you will have quality, affordable, post-secondary training that leads to certification as a journeyperson in a skilled occupation. In addition, it is the only career route where one can earn a wage while learning a trade.

How long is the Apprenticeship Program?
Most apprenticeship programs take four years, combining approximately 80 percent paid on-the-job training with 20 percent blended in-class/online learning.

 

Who's eligible?
Anyone with a minimum of Grade 12 or the equivalent to Grade 12 is eligible to enter an apprenticeship program.

 

Are Apprentices paid?
Yes, apprentices receive salary & financial support for the duration of the program, also apprenticeship often leads to a full-time career directly after completing the program.

 

Pathways
You can either complete a pre-apprentice program at a college or go directly to work; both lead to a certificate of qualification. 

First step in your apprenticeship journey is employment.  If you haven’t secured employment, WorkingNB offices can be your first connect.  Fill out the form below and we’ll ensure an employment counsellor in your region reaches out to support you in your path forward.
